Western Wall (Wailing Wall) - Israel Tours

Visit some of the places Jesus did when he was alive during your tour to the Holy Land

If you would like to visit some of the places Jesus did when he was alive during your tour to the Holy Land, go to the Western Wall and the Western Wall Tunnel. The last remaining part of the Temple in Jerusalem that Jesus would have known, it was destroyed by the Romans about 2,000 years ago. Many visitors come here to pray following the example of King Solomon who asked God to hear everyone in this sacred place (1 Kings 8:41-43). The Western Wall Tunnel is the location of the rest of the 1,455 ft portion of the wall. There is a model there that shows the Passover pilgrimage that would have been taken by Jesus as a child (Luke 2:46). You can also the site where a beggar was healed by Peter (Acts 3:7) and where Jesus openly confronted money-changers and merchants (John 2:3-6 and Matt. 21:12-13)-stories to keep in mind on your Israel tour.

The tunnels of the Western Wall were created using side-by-side arches to support staircases that lead from the city to the Temple Mount.Tyropaean valley once ran along the western side of the Temple Mount, however, visitors on tours in Israel will notice it has been filled with the refuse from all of the demolition and rebuilding. This valley used to separate the Herodian quarter from the Temple and the arches were built to form a bridge between these two sites. Amazingly enough, these arches and pathways still support the modern streets and go right below the Muslim Quarter. One your pilgrimage to Israel, if you stop at the Western Wall Tunnel, you can see the pavement built by Herod Agrippa (Acts 12:21), the Holies of Holies and the foundation of the Praetorium (Matt. 27:27).
