In Jerusalem there are armed guards outside the entrance to the Temple Mount and also in front of the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque. They will ask you to recite the Al-Fatiha from memory (the first chapter of the Quran). But if you tell them that you are a stupid American who just recently converted and is struggling to learn Arabic, they might let you in with some documentation of your conversion.
There are plenty of fanatics who record themselves getting arrested for praying up there, then post the videos to push their agenda.
Africa and in South Asia, maybe in an edition with all different cities from this one? Also if you are referring to Hagia Sophia as the "former place of worship" that is now a museum that is no longer correct since it has since gone back to being a mosque. I am not an expert on all of these locations so that caveat may apply to another one of these sites but I thought I should mention that.
