      Old Jerusalem Moonlight Guided Tour

      Jerusalem, Israel
      From (USD) $40 Per Person (Based on 2)
      Highlights
      • Tower of David: Bathed in city lights next to the Jaffa Gate, the tower and walls of this massive stone citadel, a key part of city defenses since 200 BCE, almost looks new again.
      • Western Wall: See the most sacred spot in Judaism glowing in the spotlight of 2,500 years of history – the only remaining section of the Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE.
      • Dome of the Rock: Even at night, without the benefit of sunlight on its 67-foot-tall gold roof and the porcelain facade of the base, the gem of the Temple Mount radiates a special power.
      About this Jerusalem Tour

      Jerusalem takes on a whole different feeling when the sun goes down and the lights come on. The starkness of day gives way, and everything about the city seems to change. Everything except the Wall.

      It doesn't matter what day or time it is, a visit to the Western Wall will find people praying there. They come from all over the world – not just to pray for themselves, but to insert the written prayers of others into the cracks of the wall. More than a million are collected and buried every year.

      The Wall is the last remaining section of the Second Temple, which stood for six centuries before the Romans destroyed it in 70 CE. From practically the very moment that the rest of the Temple came down, Jews have been mourning the loss at the Wall. Over time, it also came to be known as the Wailing Wall, a reference to the open weeping there.

      Jews believe that praying here is an immediate connection to the "ear of God."And God never sleeps. This wall of limestone blocks, 187 feet long and 62 feet high, is quite a sight at night, reflecting light that changes from bright white to a soft gold. But the Wall itself never changes.

      Only the people whispering and wailing into God's ear do.

      The Night Journey

      The Dome of the Rock holds extra meaning at night. It was at night that the Prophet was taken from Mecca to Jerusalem on a winged horse, where he climbed on the Rock and ascended to Heaven. There he met other prophets, including Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, and received God's instructions. When Muhammad returned to Mecca, not all his followers could believe he'd traveled to Jerusalem, Heaven, and back in one night. But when asked to describe Jerusalem, he did so perfectly.
