Today, Wall of Tears replaces the temple in some way. This is the place of the united prayer of the Jews.
It is this section of the wall that is chosen because it is closest to the place where the Holy of Holies was.
There is an opinion that the crying wall is made of the stones of the temple. In fact, these are not stones of the temple, but the original stones of the "wall" around the temple, which King Herod the Great erected.

If you look at the masonry, you will notice a difference in the sizes of the lower rows of stones and the upper ones. The upper, smaller stones were laid much later and only the lower ones were large - the original stones of the times of King Herod the Great.
