Description

The Western Wall which dates back to the Second Temple period, is a holy place located in Jerusalem. Sometimes also referred to as the Wailing Wall, it is said that the Jews often visit the site to express grieve over the destruction of the Holy Temple.

The Wall has 45 stone layers, 28 above ground level with the rest below. The visible section of the wall is a construction of massive stones, each weighing from two to eight tons approximately. In Judaism, the Western Wall is considered the only remaining trace of Herod’s Temple. It has become a place of pilgrimage, especially for Jews.

Among the walls that constitute the Temple Mount, Western Wall is believed to possess divine powers granted by the Holy of Holies, therefore, a prayer said at the Wall is truly beneficial. Many Jews follow the practice of praying for 40 consecutive days at the Western Wall for this reason.

Spiritual feeling and a Holy place. A place for reflection on ones own life and communication with HaShem. The place was clear after the 1967 conflict and since then, thousands of people go to visit this special place.

Remains of the original temple wall. Favourite place of prayer for Jews and Christians and very holy atmosphere. Dress soberly and keep head covered. Also visit the excavations under the wall.
