The wailing wall is the closest that the Jews can get to the “Holy of Holies”.

This temple is considered the place from which the world was created ;Where Abraham took Isaac based on God’s instruction, and where the tablets of the covenant were located.
It is located in the old city of Jerusalem
There has been a very long story about this wall even after the destruction by the Roman Empire in the 16th Century. The Jewish people its their practice coming in to the site to mourn and be moan for the destruction of the temple and the national freedom it symbolized. This is the reason it is refered to as the wailing wall.
Usually at the wailing wall, petition prayers written in small papers were placed in the small hole in the wall by the petitioners believing and hoping that their prayers be granted.
