We were surprised at how easy it was to access the Wall Security is understandably tight but efficient. No restrictions to approach the wall other than one side is for men and the other for ladies. Very interesting experience and much history.

Spiritually moving! Men and women are physically separated. Men must wear headcovering (hats, etc) Must pass through security with metal detectors.

We were there on Shabbat so no photos were allowed within a certain distance of the wall. I would time that differently if I could have. Women cover shoulders and knees; men cover knees.

This is basically a cleared plaza across from the Western Wall. It's great if you're a Jew and you are here to pray or observe people praying, but beyond that, there isn't much to it really. Would I recommend visiting if you're not Jewish? Of...More

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