Update- Dismantling the Crane at the Western Wall Plaza

Update- Dismantling the Crane at the Western Wall Plaza Now that the frame for the Western Wall Heritage Center has been completed,

the crane situated in the plaza will be dismantled today between 3 pm and 3 am. For safety reasons, the upper plaza will be closed, and therefore, the entrances to the Western Wall plaza will be closed for short intermittent periods of time. The adjacent parking lot will be closed as well. The Western Wall Heritage Foundation ushers will be available to assist visitors and will do all they can to minimize any disturbance to worshipers and visitors.

Interesting Facts

The Western Wall Plaza hosts approximately 60,000 people. It symbolizes the Jewish link to Jerusalem and serves as the synagogue closest to the remains of both Holy Temples.
The Western Wall's visible stones tell of its history from the time of the Holy Temples' ruin. The original Herodian stones are distinct from the others in size and in their unique borders.
The building style of "grading" used when layering the Western Wall's stones, teaches us that the Temple Mount's walls were not perpendicular but marginally sloping.
