Last Day Jerusalem

Made it to the Temple Mount more in time today. Nobody checked my passport and the camera bag was only given a brief view. Nothing compare to yesterdays scrutiny. Guess security varies with daily form around here.

IMG_8949Once inside, the sight that immediately draws the eye is the Dome of the Rock with its golden roof.

IMG_8956From what I could figure (not really my field of expertise), the mount is predominantly a Muslim holy site and other religions are accepted but not necessarily welcome. A Jewish family walking about the grounds had a police escort and everybody around them was shouting the familiar “Allāhu Akbar”. Doesn’t get boring around here it seems.

IMG_8953Off to Ramallah tomorrow. Here’s a couple more impressions from various locations across Jerusalem.
