star-4
5 Reviews
Dome of the Rock
Built in the seventh century, the Dome of the Rock is one of the most famous Muslim shrines in the world. The iconic gilded wooden dome and ornate octagonal base marks the location where the Prophet Muhammad was believed to have ascended to heaven. Located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City, the shrine is also home to the Foundation Stone and is an important holy site. 

The Basics
Visitors to Jerusalem’s Old City can tour the Temple Mount and the outside of the Dome of the Rock outside of Muslim prayer times. Although non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the shrine, they may respectfully admire the mosaics, ancient architecture, and calligraphy that surrounds the shrine. The Dome of the Rock is open to Muslims during prayer times.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Temple Mount is located within a 35-acre compound known as Al-Haram Al-Sharif, which is controlled by the Islamic Trust.
  • The Dome of the Mount is a sacred, religious site, and non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the shrine.
  • Guided tours to the Dome of the Rock can help visitors explore the area respectfully
  • Visitors are expected to dress respectfully with covered legs and arms.
  • There are many steps and hills to get to the area, so relative physical health (and good walking shoes) are important.

Next we visit the Davidson Center, an archaeological park adjacent to Temple Mount with excavated First and Second Temple Period structures. We tour the excavated site and see ancient remains from various historic periods. At the end of the tour you are returned to your hotel.
