Owner description: The remains of the Second Temple of Jerusalem and a place of prayer sacred to the Jewish people.

See how the Jewish people prayed close to the temple @ dome of the rock .. Wailing wall was the closest to the temple

It is even better to go into the tunnel next to the wall to get more information about the tunnel temple and dome of the rock

A spiritual place for some as well as a people watching place for many others. The history of the wall connects you to the past. A must visit place.

I am not certain it's possible to describe this place. Unless you are an orthodox Jew you'll be a stranger in a strange land. Your good fortune is being allowed to be "up close and without restrictions". I returned a second time, stayed more than an hour and as an outsider was infused with the deep conviction of those who worshipped at The Wall

How do you rate such a special piece of real estate? Go. Touch it. Sit by it. Feel it. Take in all the people around you. Try and go on Shabbat. Do not take pictures. Make sure your dress is modest. You must see this site if you come to Jerusalem..

Not being particularly religious, I went to the Western Wall to learn more about Jewish customs rather than have a religious experience myself. Of course if you're in Jerusalem you must go to the Western Wall to witness religious fervor at its best. Walk up to your respective section (men and women are separated) and watch people pray, or say a prayer yourself.

Once you exit, there are great panorama views overlooking the Western Wall and the Dome of the Rock, you just have to walk around the alleyways facing the wall to find it.
