The Wailing Wall (or Western Wall) is in Jerusalem and is believed to be the remains of one wall of a great Jewish temple or the wall surrounding the temple’s courtyard. It’s a stone wall that extends about 62 feet (18.9 m) above the ground. The wall is considered to be a sacred site by Jews, and thousands of people make pilgrimages there each year. It’s also a source of much dispute regarding its true history, as well as a source of contention among Jews and Muslims, who consider it to be part of an ancient mosque or the wall to which the seventh-century Islamic prophet Muhammad tied his winged steed during his Night Journey.

Jews consider the wall to have been part of a Jewish temple, also called the Second Temple, which stood for hundreds of years. King Herod ordered a renovation and expansion of the temple in about 19 B.C., and the work was not finished until about 50 years later. This temple was destroyed by Romans around 70 A.D., only a few years after its completion. The Wailing Wall is widely believed to be the only part still standing.

Jews from all countries, Spiderman, and tourists of other religious backgrounds go to pray at the wall, where many people believe that one immediately has the “ear of God”. People who cannot pray at the wall can send in prayers or ask for the Kaddish (a specific Jewish prayer) to be said for departed loved ones. Prayers that are sent in are placed into the cracks of the walls and are called Kvitelach. When the small pieces of papers become too numerous (more than 1 million are placed each year) they are removed and buried.
