What people are saying:

The Wailing Wall, also known as the Western Wall, is located in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel. It is a section of the retaining wall of the Second Temple in the ancient state of Israel. It is about 50 meters long and 20 meters high. It is made of large stones. The State of Israel was established two thousand years ago, and the capital was Jerusalem. It was driven out of their homes by foreigners twice in history, and their subjects were exodus. The Wailing Wall was the only site left by the State of Israel at that time. After the Byzantine period, Jews living around the world were allowed to return to Jerusalem and cry out at the Wailing Wall about their suffering in exile. In the middle of the Wailing Wall, the prayer area for men and women is separated by a screen, and there is an indoor scripture study room in the men's area to sit down and pray.
