THE WESTERN WALL
Best known as the “Wailing Wall''. This is the most sacred site in the world for the Jewish and one of the main spots to visit in Jerusalem’s Old City. This is where many believers from around the world come to pray or leave their written prayers on papers that they finally insert through its cracks to follow a centuries-old tradition. There is a section for men and another for women. It is always open and free of charge for everybody, the only condition is to dress properly: men must cover their head and women should cover their legs and shoulders. Many ceremonies such as military inductions and bar mitzvahs are usually held here in the Western Wall Plaza.
The First Temple, which was made by King Solomon, got destroyed by the Babylonians in the 10th century BC. In 536 BC, a Second Temple was rebuilt by Zorobabel, Ezra, and Nehemiah upon returning from exile in Babylon. Later, in 70 AD, the Romans destroyed the Second Temple during the first Judeo-Roman War, leaving untouched the wall that today stands tall in Jerusalem and is known as the Wailing Wall. Lots of Jews still go there to pray for the rebuilding of a Third Temple.
