On this live webcam, you can see Western Wall Plaza up close as it streams from Simcha Hall at the Kotel in Jerusalem's Old City, Israel.
The moving camera shows the surrounding areas of Western Wall Plaza, a public space that hosts many ceremonies and events throughout the year which is the most religious site in the world for the Jewish people.
The Western Wall, commonly known as the Wailing Wall, is a minor section of a larger ancient retaining wall that was built as a part of the expansion of the Jewish Temple. Because of its proximity to the Temple Mount, which is considered the most sacred site in Judaism, the Western Wall is the holiest site for Jewish prayer.
This view is from Simcha Hall at the Kotel restaurant, which is marked on the map further down the page.
