Pinsteps. The Wailing Wall or the Western Wall, Jerusalem

The Western Wall, or the Wailing Wall, is a small section of one of the four retaining walls of the Temple Mount. The walls were part of a vast complex. The construction began during the reign of King Herod the Great lasted over 70 years and was never completed. On the Temple Mount, which rises above the retaining walls, stood the First and Second Temples. Judaism as a worldview does not sanctify a place. The whole universe is the temple of the Lord. However, the Temple in Jerusalem was the only place in Judaism where the worship of God took place. The Temple Mount was the spiritual center of the Jewish people. A place of purity and observance of mitzvos. King Solomon built the First Temple of Jerusalem in the 10th century BC. 49 years after the destruction of the First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar, the Jews returned from the Babylonian exile and built the Second Temple. It was destroyed in 70 CE by the Romans.
