JERUSALEM: The Western Wall or the The Wailing Wall. The Western Wall is the Holiest shrine of the Jewish world. It is revered as the last relic of the Last Temple. The Western wall is a portion of the retaining wall that Herod built around the second Temple in 20 B. C. The Roman General Titus spared this portion of the huge wall to show future generations the greatness of the Roman soldiers who had been able to destroy the rest of the building.
