Har Habayis is mountain at the edge of the old city where the First and Second Temples used to sit. The original western wall of Har Habayis still remains and is knows as the Kotel Maaravi. During the time of the Temples the Jewish Nation would travel to the Har Habayit during the three festivals of Pesach, Shevuos, and Sukkos.

[edit] Entering Har Habayis
