The Western Wall (Wailing Wall) in our web camera online is a part of the Temple of Jerusalem, destroyed in 70 year A.D. It is interesting that the Wall is not a part of the Temple, but is considered a shrine being too close to it. The stone structure 488 meters long and 15 meters high.
The Western Wall in our live stream got its name because the Jews mourned about the First and Second Shattered Temples here.
Western Wall is the most holy place for Jews from all over the world. Every day thousands of Israelis come to the wall. Turning with prayers to God, people put small papers notes between the stones of the wall. Every month, all messages are collected by a special employee and buried on the Mount of Olives.
The holy wall is visited by other tourists too: Christians and representatives of other religions come here to pray. The most important rule for them is proper clothing. Women and men have to pray separately: the right wall’s side is for women, the left side is for men. Saturdays and holidays are overcrowded time here.
The modern traditions are also held at this sacred place: Israel Defense Forces soldiers swear here as also the festives of the Day of the Liberation of Jerusalem and the Independence Day of Israel are held near the Western Wall.
