So spiritual

You can feel the spirituality. Great place for prayer and meditation. Early morning prayer is the best. Tunnel tour is a must.

Not being of Jewish faith it still made one think. And please be respectful. For a free souvenir my hubby went to the wall on male side and got a skull cap to keep. Lots of security but necessary. A wonderful place

This and the Temple Mount (see my review) are the 2 one must see while visiting Jerusalem. The wall is of true historical and religious significance. Whatever is you religious belief, it's a simple wall where one may reflect and pray solemnly amidst the chaos from sea of tourists. There are separate entries and sections for men and women.

The western wall is below the Dome of the Rock. This wall is the most important Jewish place. It is interesting to see current life and worship operating in such an old and historic site. You can enter from Dung Gate or the Old City. There are security checks with xray machines. To get a great view and photo opportunity... More

No visit to Israel is complete without visiting the Wailing Wall. Women cover up and men must wear a hat to this holy sight. Take a prayer written on a small piece of paper and slip it into the cracks of the wall. Women, stand on a chair at the divider wall to see into the men's prayer area. I... More

Beautiful area that allows all faiths to observe Jewish bar mitzvahs (on certain days). Very inspiring and humbling experience. A must visit for all. Quite moving.

This is a great place, fascinating point to see all the jews near this gaint wall... But the people who work there, all the rules you have to follow- makes you want to leave as fast as you can. Its a shame.

Interesting to see how people in our days still find time and the desire to seek God . I was there twice ( day & night time ) young and old finding the time to go in the open , touch the wall , read and pray in searching for God .

Even if you are not into the religion part of it, you can still appreciate the historical importance of it. Coming from West Europe, we were amazed at this symbol of Israel. Worth seeing.
