The western wall is just something that every visitor to Jerusalem must see, and participate in if desired. Need to go through security when entering area, also lots of police around for additional security. But felt safe here.

This was hands down the best part of my visit to Jerusalem old city. The history comes alive experiencing the worshipers at the wall.

Regardless of your religion, one must be inspired by the reverence of the Western Wall. Be prepared to place your intentions of the crevices in the wall.

We weren't allowed to visit so sadly we viewed from a distance. Great view however. Sadly there looks like a lot of modernisation and excavations that were visible going on close to and under the wall. Sadly, this could threaten the long term preservation of...More

It is a holy place for the Jews, but every Christian has to see it because it is a part of history that we need to know.

No you do not. But, remember that they have a make side of the wall and a female side of the wall. Also, it's good if you are a female and your shoulders are covered out of respect.

Do not know of this custom. Should put some coins into charity boxes available for maintenance of the Wall.
