Don’t miss to visit and pray. One cannot describe the feeling. Man is really small when he face this wall.

One of must sees. The remains of Second Temple. Open 24 hours/7 days. In the mornings (we’ve been there about 7 a.m.) you’ll be alone. Also the guided tour to Western Wall Tunnels is highly recommended.

This is not my first time here nor do I pray my last. Very holy place to pray and contemplate. I usually prefer to come by myself.

I had a profound spiritual experience, having the privilege to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Spectacular to be at, as it seems, the center of the world's attention. To me, it was much more than a "been there, done that"-experience.

Took some friends and we were all breathless. Having existed for 1500 years the emotions were great when entering the courtyard. All around were happy and overcome with wonderful feelings. A definite must do

The Wall is now segregated by sex - men have a large walled-off section; women have a smaller section closer to the remodel/ construction. There are several nice viewpoints close by for photos.
