In the 10th century BC, King David of the Jews led tribes to occupy Jerusalem and established the Jewish State of Israel as the center of their rule. Later, Solomon, his son, built a temple on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. In the sixth century B.C., the temple was burned by invading Babylonians, rebuilt half a century later, and then destroyed. The last one was rebuilt by Herod I in 35 B.C. and named Herod's Temple. By AD 70 and 135, the temple was burned down again by the Romans. The 12-metre-high west wall was restored on the foundation of the West courtyard after the temple was burned down. The crying wall, also known as the West Wall, is a section of the second temple wall of the ancient Jewish State in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is also the only remaining site of the second temple wall. It is about 50 meters long and 18 meters high. It is made of large stones. Judaism regards the wall as the first holy place. For thousands of years, when Jews living in various corners of the world returned to the holy city of Jerusalem, they would come to this stone wall to pray in low voice and cry out about the suffering of exile, so it is called "the wall of crying". According to Jewish tradition, prayers under the Western Wall go straight to heaven. So the people who come here will write their wishes and prayers into small notes and put them in the cracks of the western wall.
The Jerusalem Wailing Wall stayed in the Jerusalem National Hotel near the old city for two days. Although the Arabs live in the gathering area, the hotel gives people a very safe feeling, good service and better breakfast. After breakfast, he walked more than a kilometer from Herod Gate into the old city and crossed several alleys. Through a security passage, first came to the crying wall, looking at it from afar just think it is a holy place for Jews, the whole square upstream many visitors, many people may like me to admire. But when I put my head on the cold wall, I could still hear the sirens coming from time to time. I went to guards several times along the way. Every intersection was guarded by soldiers with guns. I felt nervous and uneasy. I prayed for a world without war in my heart. Jerusalem was known to be relatively unsafe before coming to Israel. All our friends, including those in Israel, told us to be safe. After today's personal experience, I can't say that it's absolutely safe here, but it's not as unsafe as I imagined.
The "Wailing Wall" also known as the Western Wall, is a section of the second temple wall of the ancient Jewish State in the old city of Jerusalem, and is also the only remaining site of the second temple wall, about 50 meters long and 18 meters high. Above the crying wall are two equally famous holy places of Islam, the Rock (Golden Roof) Mosque and the Aksa Mosque. In 1992, archaeologists revealed that they had discovered five huge cornerstones, which had a history of more than 2,000 years. The largest rock is about 13.6 meters long, 4.6 meters wide, 3.5 meters high and weighs 570 tons. It is said to be the third largest man-made rock in the world. Judaism regards the wall as the first holy place, and the believers must weep to it in order to express their mourning for the ancient temple and look forward to its restoration. For thousands of years, when Jews living in various corners of the world returned to the holy city of Jerusalem, they would come to this stone wall and pray in low voice, crying about the tragic exile of people who had been driven away from their homes, so they were called "the wall of crying". There is a partition board in the Crying Wall Square, which allows men and women to pray and cry separately. The Wailing Wall is Jerusalem's first attraction and must-see place for tourists from all over the world; it was included in the World Heritage List in 1981.
The crying wall, also known as the West Wall, is a great Jewish Resort and the nearest place to God in legend. Here people pray and wish, write their wishes on paper and stuff them into the cracks in the wall. The crying wall is separated between men and women, and women are relatively short. In addition to the crying wall outside, men have a large part of the indoor, and there are more people praying inside. The wall of crying is a vivid history from top to bottom. Every kind of brick and stone represents the different period of Jerusalem. Only when you are in it can you feel the strong historical, cultural and religious atmosphere.
Men and women enter separately. Although men wear hats, there are free hats at the entrance. Someone here is facing the wall, complaining sadly... Some hold the Bible in their hands and pray silently; others fill the cracks of the crying wall with white notes to write their hearts, (beside the crying wall there is a paper arch for them) because they believe that the letter to God will be received by God.
This is the most classic place in Jerusalem. Jews here pray very devoutly, and they wish to write their wishes on small notes and stuff them into the cracks of the crying wall. When I went to Rome, I did as the Romans did, wrote my wishes, and stuffed small pieces of paper into the cracks of the wall. It is suggested that we should go there and visit it. We should also pay attention to keeping quiet and not making any noise.
Crying Wall, White Cold Christmas Hall in the West Bank city of Bethlehem (White Cold), White Cold is the birthplace of Jesus, is one of the most important pilgrimage sites for Christians.

Today it is jointly administered by the Catholic, Orthodox and Armenian churches. It was listed on the World Heritage List in 2012.
Jewish holy places also allow outsiders to enter, but respect their customs, wash their hands, wear hats... Men and women should pray separately. There is separation between them. If you have a wish, you can write it on a small paper and put it in the crack of the wall to help you achieve what you want.
