Visiting Jérusalem without stopping at western wall is a shame. It has to be seen like others monuments in the old town

Probably the most sacred spot for all Jews, except for what lies above it! No visit to Israel is complete for a Jew without a contemplative visit to the Kotel!

Long queues to get to the Dome of the Rock. Not recommended for individuals who are not religious or do not want to understand Muslim culture. Security check points to enter the premises.

There is no way to describe what it feels to be Jewish and first visit the Western Wall. It truly is the holiest of sites, and one that creates an instant connection to the religion.

So much history to experience here with the Wall, mosque and people of many nations, cultures and religions. Pictures don't come close to experiencing it firsthand. A must-see site in the Old City.

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.
