Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall, is located in the Old City of Jerusalem, a place of prayer and pilgrimage sacred to the Jewish people.
Erected initially as part of the expansions of the second Jewish temple begun by Herod the Great, it’s one of the holiest sites in the world. The Western Wall is a surviving trace of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, which was destroyed by the Romans. The Temple was the center of the spiritual world, the primary conduit for the Godliness. For this reason, the Wall is the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray.
