A Tour Through the Temple Mount – הר הבית
Time of tour: 2 to 4 hours
In the 7th century, the Muslims reached Jerusalem. The believers of the new religion came forth from the deserts of Arabia, creating a mighty empire.
Jerusalem is not mentioned explicitly in the Qur’an, but its Muslim rulers cemented its status – the third most important site to Islam – and built magnificent and impressive buildings in the city. The “Literature in Praise of Jerusalem” gives special expression to Jerusalem’s importance in Islam, praising the city and emphasizing traditions related to it.
The tour will lead us around the sites of the Temple Mount. Highlights include: the Dome of the Rock and the Golden Gate.
