This was by far the nearest to a spiritual experience in Jerusalem! The rest of the biblical sites we visited were as best can be described as a zoo! The Western Wall or Wailing Wall was by comparison relatively calm and tranquil. Women went to one side and men to the other and we were able to reconnect ourselves in front if the massive stones and see all the notes and coins that had been left in the cracks. There was plenty of space and I had a few feet on either side of me so I did not feel pressured or bustled. It was a sunny day and we had picked up the Jewish head covering that all men are required to wear at the wall. It was a perfect experience and found it spiritually enriching!

I went twice to the Western Wall in a week, such was the impression it made on me. Such a historical, emotional reminder of the dramatic history. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

We were fortunate to visit on a Monday when Bar Mitzvahs were taking place which was in interesting experience.

Went 3 times. Very crowded on Friday night but such enthusiasm and spirituality on display, I was happy to be there. From the animated dancing of the Hasidim with the soldiers to the circle dancing of the pilgrims from Angola it was great! There is such a sense of history too. I hope all the prayers tucked in the crevices of the wall are answered.

Visited the Western Wall twice during our trip. The first time was in the afternoon, and it was very hot, and very crowded. The second time was at 08.00 hrs and it was a far better experience as few people were around. You don't need long, but well worth a visit.

It was awesome to see this wall after hearing so much about it's religious significance to the Jews. In actuality it is a huge retaining wall for the site of the first and second temple, dating back 3000 years. It's structure is incredible by itself. It's powerful to see people praying at the Wall and sticking little prayers on pieces of paper in the cracks of the Wall

It may be known to some as the western wall or wailing wall. The Kotel , as it is known today, is impressive. The stones go back to ancient times. There are little scraps of paper stuffed in between the stones with prayers and notes. Many Orthodox, many secular, many Jews, many Gentiles, all together singing, dancing, praying. It is a moving experience.

We visited reasonably early so not too crowded. It was a spiritual experience although as with Jerusalem as a whole you do have to accept current day obsession with selfies etc. And a bit noisy due to building works

Visiting the Western Wall is always remarkable. I visited this site every single day I was in Jerusalem. Though I have been here before it never ceases to amaze me. The fact that it is the only site standing closes to where the holy of holies use to be, and the amount of history this site contains; it is just remarkable.

Touch the Western Wall will let you remember how God save Israel. It’s a holly place to worship God. This place is organized so well and safe, too.
