Al Masjid Al Aqsa, Jerusalem

3.6
Admire one the holiest religious sites in Islam at Al Masjid Al Aqsa, 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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Jerusalem holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Al Masjid Al Aqsa and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
