The Western Wall or most popularly known as the ‘Wailing Wall’, is the holiest place of prayer of the Jews. The first seven layers made from meleke limestone, dates back to the reign of Herod the Great, making it the same set of stones Jesus laid eyes on during his time. Known today as a place of prayer, it was termed ‘Wailing Wall’ because of the practice of Jews to gather near this part of Old Jerusalem’s wall to weep over the destructions of their temples, during the Byzantine Empire.
