This really is one of the most important sites in all of Israel. We were there on a holy day and were amazed at the number of people praying. This is an absolute must visit.

A visit to the western wall is a must. The walls are the only remnant left of the Bais Ha Migdash (Jewish Temple) and Judaism’s most holy site in the world!

Such a moving experience and one I'll never forget. I'm neither Jewish nor particularly religious but I found this a highlight of my Israel trip. Devote an hour and enjoy the Jewish devotion.
