Favorite thing: The Temple Mount or Noble Sanctuary is a elevated plateau in the Old City rich with history and religious importance. It is currently governed by the Waqf, or Supreme Muslim Religious Council. It has names in Hebrew Har haBáyit and in Arabic Haram esh-Sharif.

The Temple Mount is sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians. It is believed to be the site of the great Temple of Jerusalem, the holiest place in Judaism. For Muslims, it is the site of the Prophet Muhammad's journey to heaven described in the Qur'an. Finally, Christians revere it as a place frequently visited by Jesus and some believe it will play a major role in end-time events.
