The Wailing wall aka the Kotel became the main prayer place only about 700 years ago, when the Ramban arrived to Jerusalem, and started resurrecting the Jewish settlement there. The area west of the Temple Mount was deserted, so Jews settled there. The Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem has figured prominently in the Jewish consciousness for centuries. Generations dreamed of appearing before the old stone wall Nowadays, the Wall is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and the cracks between the rectangular stones are crammed with paper. Over a million people visit each year.
