The real wall is as expected after reading guidebook. I hope my wish will become reality. The same hopes to all other people. Very interesting to come on Mon or Thu when young boys become a man - very interesting event.

Exciting to see the partial remaining wall of the Temple! There is no intermingling of genders. Men pray on one side. Women pray on the other side. There are women employed to watch that no female is improperly dressed (no bare shoulders or arms).

Moving experience ... Ladies (young, old and in between), they are serious about covering your knees and your shoulders. Bring a shawl or sweater. Can get crowded so be prepared to gently muscle your way to the wall for direct contact!

I loved visiting this place in spite of the fact that I visited it on a Sabbath and the entrance is much more limited on these days. You are asked not to take photos on that day as it is a special day for the...More
