Delve into the sanctity of the Temple Mount, an iconic site where Solomon's Temple once stood, leaving an indelible mark on its surroundings. This sprawling complex, encompassing a large plato built atop vaults and an earthen floor, housed the Temple, the halls of the royal Stylobate, and other remarkable structures. These magnificent structures were destroyed during the Roman occupation in 70 AD. Nevertheless, remnants of its grandeur have been remarkably preserved to this day.
Presently, exploring the Temple Mount entails traversing the compound of an expansive mosque. Standing proudly in the center is the iconic Dome of the Rock, often misidentified as the Mosque of Omar. Surrounding it are myriad Muslim religious buildings, prayer facilities, Muslim tombs, and mosques, including the esteemed Al-Aqsa Mosque. The sanctity of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem in Islam is intrinsically connected to their significance in Judaism and Christianity. Moreover, during the early Muslim period, an additional layer of importance was added as the Temple Mount became associated with the place from which Muhammad ascended to heaven.
We finish the tour just off the Temple Mount so that you can either join another of our tours or grab a lunch.
