The people here are very kind and religous. they respect you and dont judge you if you go to visit. the rules are quit strict though, no non modest clothing, eg: shorts, crop tops... and you must not interrupt people when they are praying.

Western Wall is the closest place to the Holiest of the Holiest of the Temple - the Foundation Stone, where the Jews snd the Christians are permitted to pray. This is a place, full of Mystical Engergy, and one simply cannot avoid but feeling that

We visited this place during the day and the beginning of shabbath. The last is recommended because of the atmosphere. You can see all kinds of people dressed in a nice way rushing to be on time

A visit to the wall is not only a religious experience but moving as well. For women, remember to bring a cover for your shoulders and knees. Also the women’s side is smaller and more crowded so be prepared to wait to touch or pray...More

This is the western wall of the second Jewish temple. Next to it are two of the most important and beautiful mosques in the Muslim world, built on the site where the temple itself was. This creates problems that may arise in the future. My...More

Do not know of this custom. Should put some coins into charity boxes available for maintenance of the Wall.
