Western Wall, Jerusalem

#2 of 2,120 in Things to do in Israel
Touch a piece of ancient Jewish history among scores of devoted worshippers at Western Wall, built by King Herod in 19 BCE. The structure serves as an important landmark to modern Jews, who consider it a holy prayer site. Many visitors slip handwritten notes into the cracks in the wall, believing that prayers requested in this manner receive special consideration. Wear modest clothing here, covering your shoulders and knees out of respect for the site and the worshippers who come to pray there. Put Western Wall into our Jerusalem holiday site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Beautiful and Holy place. I am very thankful to the Jewish people for sharing this and allowing the world to share in what is most sacred to them.
  • No word can describe my feeling when see this magnificent wall. For those who like me who are not believing in the religion, this is a very worthy place to visit and feel the culture with the Jewish people.
