The Western Wall, also known as the Kotel, is the most sacred site recognized by the Jewish faith aside for the Temple Mount itself. It is located in the Old City of Jerusalem at the foot of the Western side of the Temple Mount and is a remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Jewish Temple’s courtyard. It dates back to around 19 BCE. At this point in time, it is a destination for many Jews to come pray at. At almost any hour of the day, you will find anywhere from a couple of people to thousands praying and connecting with their Judaism.
