The Western Wall was a place thats worth visiting at least once in life, where religion and history come together, where one-self can travel into their own inner journey and rekindle his/her own face. Special, spiritual and inspiring.

The western wall or wailing wall is the only remainder of the ancient jewish temple. If fact it is an external supporting wall of the compound. Unfortunately the current picture of TripAdvisor presents the Omar mosque rather that the western wall itself - there is...More

Nothing spectacular. It’s a wall, and overlooks Mount Olive I believe. But the old city is a mere tourist pit, with too many shops, limited choices. Yes, you are walking through historic pathways, and seeing a tribute to human’s ability to construct long lasting structures....More

I would never thought praying on the Western Wall will be a moving experience but it took my breath away. Never felt like that after praying. Amazing!

I’m glad we made the trip to see the wailing wall! It was so surreal being there. It was very moving watching all the students writing their praise requests and putting them in the cracks.

A surreal experience to see in person. Make sure you realize that men and women must go to separate places to visit the wall.

Jordan is great! Israeli people don't like Jordan and vice versa. So you cannot rent a car in Israel and travel to Jordan like I thought I will do. I focused on the Petra and Wadi Rum desert. Petra is enourmous and I thought... More
