The wall, being one of the stabilisations of the Temple Mount, is the most sacred site of prayer for Jews. It is between the Golden Dome and the Al Aksah mosque and a must see as tourist. Being there helps you to understand the power and importance of this place. Great site of history too, with the foundation built by... More

Head to the Western Wailing Wall, the most sacred site for Jews and a sole remnant of the 2nd Jewish Temple. The temple was erected by Herod the Great. On the way to the wall, stop and view the Golden Menorah, a replica of the golden menorah used during the time of the third temple. It is the Jewish faith’s... More

A must see. Great to see the foundation of the second temple and what has become a holy site for the Jewish people. One warning if you go on the sabbath the take the restrictions on cameras and even devices seriously. Highly recommend

What a beautiful and memorable place. So much history and culture. We witnessed a bar mitzvah, wedding, torah ceremony and soldiers being sworn in.

The most revered site for the Jews. It's believe to be the Western Wall of the second Temple of the Jewish people. You can see the devout Jewish people praying at the wall day and night. If you are inclined to join in the prayer please be respectful and observe solemnity in their presence. You need to cover your head... More

The Western Wall (aka the "Wailing Wall") in Jerusalem is the holiest of Jewish sites. It is deemed sacred because it is a remnant of the Herodian retaining wall that once enclosed and supported the Second Temple. For centuries those of the Jewish faith have gathered here to lament the loss of their temple. The Western Wall Plaza, the large... More
