The Temple Mount

As we waited to enter the Temple Mount complex near the Western wall I took these photos showing the difference in street levels from today vs bible times.

The Dome of the Rock is only open to Muslim visitors.
Parts of the four walls surrounding the Temple Mount date back to the Second Jewish Temple.  The walls were built around the summit of Mount Moriah where Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son Issac.
