The famous “Lion of Megiddo” taken from an ancient 8th century BCE seal, excavated in Megiddo (Armageddon) in the Jordan Valley. The seal belonged to Shema, a servant of King Jeroboam II, who was King of Israel during the time of the Prophet Amos. The lion is also the symbol of the Tribe of Judah and of Jerusalem. The same "Lion of Megiddo" appeared on the Israeli 5 Lira Banknote (1958), 5 Lira Coin (1978) and on the Half Sheqel Coin (1980). Above the figure of the lion appears the State of Israel Emblem and below it the word “Israel” in English, Hebrew and Arabic.

Some 8 million people from all over the world visit the Western Wall each year, including Kings and Presidents.
