NileGuide Expert Says:
Best uncrowded view over the Western Wall and Temple Mount.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Don't miss the to-scale model of the temple that sits atop the roof, just in front of the Temple Mount itself.
- It costs 10NIS (about $3) to walk into the Dan Building of Aish HaTorah's Center overlooking the Western Wall -- admire the Chihuly chandelier, gaze through the windows, and then step back outside to ascend the stairs to the rooftop where you'll be overwhelmed by the panorama laid out before you.
To the East, The Temple Mount lies at your feet and the Mount of Olives is in the near distance. To your left is a view of the Christian and Moslem Quarters and to your right are the rolling hills described in Psalms: "Jerusalem, hills surround her.""
