Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Admire one the holiest religious sites in Islam at Al Aqsa Mosque, where, according to traditional beliefs, Muhammad was transported on his night journey. The ancient, 1,000-year-old façade is adorned with tiles and consists of 14 Romanesque-style arches, along with a characteristic lead-sheeted dome. The interior consists of aisles supported by a number of marble columns and a gold-plated ceiling. Non-Muslims are currently not permitted to enter the mosque grounds, and approaching the façades is possible only during specific visiting hours. You'll need to wear modest clothes and avoid public displays of affection in order to not appear disrespectful.

  • This is what Jerusalem is to Muslims. Don't go to Jerusalem and not visit the Al Aqsa Mosque which is the 3rd Holiest Mosque for Muslims so it means a lot. The Mosque itself is beautiful and people ar...  read more »
  • I love this mosque, what keeps amazing me is the olive trees in the yards, ancient trees. The dome of the rock mosque is very spiritual. 
  • Very beautiful mosque, beautiful architecture, dome of the rock up to rate on the esplanade. Difficult access to every passage, mosque "keep" by soldiers, despite the difficulty do not forget it.

  • Good news ! Isis is attacking israel and there is an strong army called cataib alislam altawhedeya will destroy israel allah akbar ! Jason from ny
  • Good place... However the time to enter n visit is very limited. From the way they treat the tourists, we definitely can guess how they treat the local palestanis. I bet someday they will destroy the things here and build their new david city.
  • Inshah allah ...Allah will give the opportunity to visit and pray at Baith-ul-Muqadas (masjid-ul-Aqsa ) where Prophat Eisa (Aw) will arrive along with two Angel's feather at the Minar of this Masjid said by Our Prophat Muhamed (Pbuh) before 1000 of years above as sign of dooms day... Aameen...
  • Okay first of all I don't like that it says I hate it. As a veteran of Iraq I met many Muslims who were very respectful. They had no problem talking to me about their historical places, including their mosques. Mind you I was not allowed in, but I was also not treated with disrespect. I see no reason for people to be hateful to non-muslims. It's honestly a sad situation where a piece of such amazing historical significance can't even be appreciated.
  • The golden dome is not masjid Al aqsa but the green dome is the true masjid Al aqsa.
