What makes Jerusalem the spiritual center of the world for Jews, Muslims, and Christians alike? Join an expert guide on this four-hour walking tour to understand Jerusalem’s 5000-year-old past and visit the sites caught in the story that has included centuries of peace and worship, as well as controversy, bloodshed and war.

Whereas other city tours and the SANDEMANs NEW Jerusalem FREE Tour discuss the Temple Mount from afar, on this tour you’ll be taken through security to this holiest of sites. We hear of the beginnings of Israel, the site where Abraham binds his son and where King Solomon’s famous first temple was raised. See the golden Dome of the Rock shrine, marking the site where the prophet Mohammed ascended to heaven, and enter the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where, for over 1500 years, a church has stood on the rocky hill of Calvary – the site of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial.

This tour experience is not political. It is appreciated that you leave your prejudices behind as you explore the amazing history of the Holy City and its earthly sights, which have inspired three of the most widely-practised religions in the world today.

 

NOTE

1. Modest dress is required to enter the Temple Mount. Please bring appropriate clothing – shorts are not permitted
2. Religious items such as Bibles are also not permitted on Temple Mount.
3. Temple Mount is closed to non-Muslims Friday and Saturday. The area may also be closed during the week due to security or holidays!

 

*Average tour length. The independent guides with whom we work have your best interests in mind; while the tour usually includes the sites and stories above and lasts this long, your tour may vary depending on what your guide thinks is best for your group!
