We strolled through the Jewish quarter on our way to the western wall, all are welcome but with a heavy security presence. The religious significance is apparent with Men praying to the left and women to the right as you view the wall.

We went here after walking the Via Dolorsa and Stations of the Cross. Although we are not Jewish, we wanted to see and pray at the religious site.

Enjoyed taking some of our group travelers on a adventure walk from our hotel Olive Tree Hotel through the old city when our tour was done. Everyone enjoyed the walk and shopping along the way to the Western Wall.

The Western wall is the primary symbol of Jerusalem. It is a great place to see people praying, admiring the beauty and sheer size of the wall and people watching. It is a special place that you will love.

Praying here is an experience of a life time that I have done twice. The 2nd time I was with Dean Bye and Return Ministry people and we were able to Hug IDF soldiers and have them in our group photo here.
