Temple Mount West Wall

This was my first view of the "Wailing Wall" the western wall of Mount Moria or Temple Mount.
Actually Mt. Moria is mostly hidden under a lot of dirt. The wall you see here was built as a retaining wall by King Herod the Great when he enlarged the Temple Mount to build a bigger temple. This wall was not actually part of the Temple itself. It is however awesome!
