Wailing Wall - Western Wall, Jerusalem: 60 reviews and 131 photos
Western Wall/Wailing Wall, this is the Judaic Jerusalem equivalent of the Christian Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Moslem Dome on the Rock. Of course, it predates the other two sites. This is an exposed stretch of the retaining wall Herod the Great built to support the Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans. The large plaza to the west of the wall was bulldozed in June 1967 to allow easier access - before houses literally abutted the wall. The Western Wall is divided into male and female areas. It is a popular spot for bar mitzvahs. Photography - except on Shabbat - is permitted, but use some discretion.
