Israeli soldier and an Orthodox Jew praying at the Western Wall, Old Jerusalem, Israel

The Western Wall, also known as the Kotel, Wailing Wall, Wailing-place of the Jews, is the most holy place accessible to the Jewish people because of Muslim control of the Temple Mount. Known in recent centuries as the "Wailing Wall" this was built by Herod the Great as the retaining wall of the Temple Mount complex. The plaza was created as an area for prayer when Israel captured the Old City in 1967.
