The western wall in the evening

Category: Sense of Place

The western wall is a remnant of the ancient wall that originally built to hold the Second Temple in Jerusalem. The wall has been a site for Jewish prayer and pilgrimage for centuries and being one of the most sacred site of Jewish. Since it is a site that open to visitors for 24 hours, I visited the site after sunset in purpose, in order to get an atmospheric shot of the wall in night time setting.

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
