Photographer's Note

The Western Wall (Hebrew: הכותל המערבי HaKotel HaMa'aravi), or simply Kotel, is a wall dating back at the first Temple of Jerusalem. It is also listed as the Wall of Crying or as the al-Buraq Wall. Herod the Great built the imposing walls of containment around Mount Moriah, enlarging the small flat esplanade on which were raised on the First and Second Temple in place at the top of the Temple Mount today.
