  • While access to the Temple Mount itself is fairly limited to non-Moslems (Sat-Th: Between 7:30 a.m-10a.m via the Mughrabi Gate only), there's plenty to do near the Temple Mount. Our top pick is the Davidson Center, where you'll learn all about the wondrous Temples that rose above the Temple Mount in Biblical times--before you step out into the southern wall area of the Mount to see the area for yourself. Second choice for things to do close to the Temple Mount is the viewpoint from the top of the Mount of Olives, where you'll be able to look down on the vast area of the Temple Mount itself. Another great view from the west, this time, may be had from our next choice: the roof of the Aish Building, on the edge of the Western Wall Plaza. Not too far away is the magnificent City of David archeological park. Lots of steps, but a wealth of fascinating sights as you walk through the area that King David designated as the capital of his kingdom. Jump a few thousand years and head up into the Jewish Quarter for a look at a relatively new and grand synagogue--the Hurva, restored and reopened in 2010. In the same area you'll find the Karaite Synagogue with its modest museum of Karaite customs. Other interesting things to do near the Temple Mount include a visit to the rooftop of the Austrian Hospice, a walk up the Via Dolorosa and a few moments of contemplation in front of the Western Wall of the Temple Mount.
