From the Western Wall (buses #1 & #3)

From the Western Wall plaza, walk up the stairs leading to the Jewish Quarter. (When you walk away from the Wall, the stairs are located diagonally to the left). There are 2 lion sculptures at the top of the stairs. At the top of the stairs turn left to Misgav Ladach Street. Several steps from the corner, on the right side, you will see "The Holy Temple Visitors Center."

From the Jewish Quarter Parking Lot (bus #38, 38A, 83)

Walk through the parking lot, passing the Sephardic Center on your right. Walk to the central square of the Jewish Quarter. In the center of the square you will see the Temple Institute's Golden Menorah. Cross the square diagonally, passing the bank on your left. Continue walking down Tiferet Yisrael Street, passing the Bagel Shop on your right. At the restaurant on the corner (at the end of the street), turn right. This is Misgav Ladach Street. Look for the sign, "The Holy Temple Visitors Center" on the right side of the street.
