I thought the Wailing Wall was built on top of an older existing wall by King Herod. The older wall being of an earlier religion. In much the same way as building churches on top of stone circles, therefore meaning it has been adopted into a newer religion as seen by modern day "pagans" at stone circles.

I've honestly never heard that about The Wailing wall...Would anyone know the (approximate) date of it's erection and which Herod was involved...as there appears to have been more than one?...I've never thought about it before, but it is quite logical that Judaism has gone through several changes since it's inception as a religion...so sacred sites would have been accordingly "upgraded".
