The Wailing Wall is a remnant of the ancient wall on the western side of Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel. Also known as the Western Wall or Kotel, the Wailing Wall is one of the most sacred Jewish sites outside of the temple itself and dates back to the era of Herod the Great in 19 BCE.
