The world's largest mezuza on Monday was affixed to the upper gate of Jerusalem's Western Wall Plaza.

The ceremony was conducted by Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, in conjunction with philanthropist Shmuel Flatto-Sharon, who donated the mezuza.

The mezuza, which is made entirely of Bronze, measures 1.4 meters in length, is 25 cm wide, and weighs 40 kg.

It is one of three mezuza's designed by deceased Spanish artist Salvador Dali.
