Create an itinerary including Western Wall
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. PutWestern Wall into our Jerusalem holiday site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I found this site to be something else as people of all races, gender etc were there and a lot participated in writing the necessary notes and to stick it into the wall.

  • Simply impressive to see such an important religious landmark up close. It is important to be well schooled and to learn about different practices.
