This street dates to the time of Herod the Great. At this point turn the head up and see the southern end of the Western Wall with a row of vaulted stones which once supported a huge arch that carried stairs ascending from the street to the Temple Mount. This arch is named Robinson's Arch after British researcher. This site is the southern extension of the original Western wall but does not come under the direct control of the Rabbi of the Wall or the Ministry of Religious Affairs. Due to this juridical fact, in 2004, the place has been opened for man and women joint prayers and hosts ceremonies of Reform and Conservative Jewish groups. In 2013 additional space was added to expand the prayer area.
