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.

They pray with the body and the tourists on the wall even you should not take pictures. They fight and it's the height of lack of education/common sense there. You can sit or put your orders you made in mini papers in the Holes of the wall (which were shots), stop leaving your prayers. Don't stare at the ultra-Orthodox Jews, or take pictures of them, they get bored and can ask you to be removed from the scene. Go to a synagogue, talk to a rabbi, eat pomegranate and meet the neighborhood of the ultra-Orthodox Jews. A wealth of history!

But if you're lucky enough to be at the beginning of Shabbat, you can enjoy that festive atmosphere that wouldn't be seen on normal days. In the part of the wall reserved for men, there is a section of the interior wall with a library that is worth seeing. How in Shabbat you can not create anything, photos and videos are prohibited.
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.
