Western or Wailing Wall

Just below the Temple Mount is the Western or Wailing Wall, the holiest site in Judaism.

This is part of the retaining wall of the Temple Mount dating back to a time when a Jewish temple stood on the Mount.

Jews go to the Western or Wailing Wall to pray and leave prayers on pieces of paper between the wall's ancient stones.
