Western Wall, Jerusalem
(4.6/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web)
Touch a piece of ancient Jewish history among scores of devoted worshippers at Western Wall, built by King Herod in 19 BCE. The structure serves as an important landmark to modern Jews, who consider it a holy prayer site. Many visitors slip handwritten notes into the cracks in the wall, believing that prayers requested in this manner receive special consideration. Wear modest clothing here, covering your shoulders and knees out of respect for the site and the worshippers who come to pray there. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Western Wall by using our Jerusalem tourist route planner.

  • I love learning about Israel and Jerusalem it warms my heart to no.I thank God for showing me the rigth way I hope one day to visit.
  • The Western Wall stands 60 feet high and approximately 160 feet long. Great stones with Herodian masonry from the first century can be seen in the lower part of the wall. Jewish people gather at the Wailing Wall today to remember the Temple, the place where God's presence had been manifested as the sacrifices were made. On Fridays at sunset and on the eve Feast days and Fast days Orthodox Jews gather at the Wall to mourn "the Temple that is destroyed" and the "majesty that is departed" from Israel.
