The Western Wall was built in 20 BC by King Herod and occupies a part to the west of the Temple Mount. The Western Wall is also called as ‘The Wailing Wall’ since for centuries, Jews have gathered here to grieve over the loss of their Temple.

The wall has seen its fair share of troubles and has been a witness to the destruction caused by the Romans in 70 AD. During the 16th century under the Ottoman rule, the wall became a place of worship for the Jewish people and even today, you can see hundreds of people come here to offer their prayers, write notes and place them in the wall.

Many celebrities and important personalities have also visited the wall to offer their prayers and experience an inseparable part of Jerusalem’s history.

  • This is one of my main inspiration places in the world. I've not been there for a while and I miss it a lot. I'm not a religious person and I don't like the sound of systemized religion but that place always gives a few quiet moments that are followed by the feeling that all is really one.

  • Visited the Western Wall in 2015. An amazing experience. Steeped in so much history and sacred place for Jews. Pleasure to stand here and watch worshiping . Shalom

  • A place to visit and understand. Complex situation as so many history myths legends whatever-you-call-it are the one on top each other. Follow the rules and respect the place, enjoy the traditions the cults...

  • A very interesting place and a very different place. It feels like something historical and spiritual after a visit here.
