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.

  • Bali a few times! Each time into offensive Sabbath! Very bright and fun celebrating the Jews this feast, songs and dances will not stand by and already the second verse podhvatyvaeš′ all words and in unison sing Shalom Shabbat, because if it's your holiday, your close relatives, and this place is your home! The sense of unity of all and sundry in this world! I Advise All Of you! The note did not write, but approached the wall whenever visited Jerusalem!

  • The Western Wall is Judaism's most important physical site, build by the hated king Herod. No voting in UNESCO will undo scientifically proven history. 
  • There are places that we simply cannot give an estimate, because it is not expressed in words. These are the places where people are alone and at the same time alone with God. who you are by religion

  • As someone very non-religious I always feel a bit weird around what others regard as "sacred" sites. How to act, what others will think of me. I had similar feelings about this. What struck was how open it was. It's interesting to see the range of people, hacedic Jews, army, tourists and everyone else besides with a load of notes stuck in the holes in the wall.
  • One of the most holy places in Judaism. My family and I visited here...ladies to one side, and men on the other. It was a surreal and beautiful experience to pray here, and be a part of what makes Jerusalem so special and amazing.
  • One of humankind's most sacred places. Without having been there in person, experienced the atmosphere and sensed it's importance, it might be difficult to understand the long-lasting conflict around it's very existence.
  • You get killed when you enter this place as non jew/zionist !!
  • eternal god ve mercy on us fill us with u r life plan to our family give me good health let u r plan be successed in me amen.
