I was with a tour that visited the Western Wall Friday evening at the beginning of Sabbath. It was an amazing experience to watch as the people celebrated. There is security as you enter, and for that time period they request no photography. Be respectful of the culture, if you choose to visit on Sabbath.

I guess that everybody think, the western wall is to jewish only. I desagree. It is a place to prayer for everyone. Go with clean heart.

What an amazing place to be one with God in prayer. There is definitely a reason why this part of the wall was not broken down as it is a really sanctified place. But people must know that you can connect with God in prayer anytime anywhere. This is definitely a must place to go to if you are visiting... More

It's one of the greatest religious monuments in the world. Al aqsa mosque and the Temple Mount in background to the spiritual value of the places. Visiting it on Sabbath is an opportunity.

Truly a special place & experience. No, people are NOT praying to a wall! It's just the closest place to the holiest place in Judaism, which is under the Dome of the Rock. Where the First & Second Temples were. Once conquered, Arabs built on top of The Temple Mount.

As a Christian it was an interesting insight into Jewish prayer life. A quite respectful lace with prayer as the focus.

While I am an active(?) Christian, I viewed my tour of Israel as a vacation. Unlike most visitors, I didn’t lend any particular importance to the geographic areas where God, in the form of Jesus, walked or lived. I did not “sense” or “feel“ more spiritual at any of the popular historical Judeo Christian sites. I maintained that mindset as... More

This wall symbolizes the History of not only Jerusalem but the pain and pleasure of the History of Judaism. It is the living proof of the heritage and love for the land. It is also the current gathering point for shabbat celebration , for prayer and for History. It takes your breath away the first time and the second time... More

One of the famous places to visit, can be very crowded on Friday's and Saturday's , but still number one in a bucket list.
