Western Wall

The Western Wall, known to the West as the “Wailing Wall” and Islam as the Buraq Wall, is an ancient limestone wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. The Jews are permitted to pray at this site. However, the site of the Holy of Holies, the most sacred site in the Jewish faith, lies behind this area.

Tourists have to line up in long queues and pass through cumbersome security checks in order to enter to the grounds of the Western Walls.

Note: Western Walls is a holy site. Please ensure that you are appropriately and modestly dressed. Refrain from unnecessary conversations during prayers and near worshippers. Avoid smoking or lighting candles. If it is not possible to turn off cell phones, best to silence them and follow instructions of ushers.
