Beautiful Journey—Israel#4—The western “wailing” wall
The western wall is a unique religious site called the “Wailing Wall” in Jerusalem and the best itinerary acknowledged by travelers. Also, the only remaining over 2,000 years old outer wall of an ancient Jewish temple is made of limestone.
It is located in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The western wall shows impressive architecture, history, and traditional lifestyle.
Many Jews visited the wall and mourned for the temple’s destruction at the time of Herod’s Temple in the 70 CE.
