Correct Answer : (3) The Wailing wall is situated in Jerusalem.

Explanation :

The Western Wall (Wailing Wall) is the holiest shrine of the Jewish world which is located in Jerusalem. Wailing Wall or Kotel is an ancient limestone wall. The Western Wall is 488 meters long and its height rose to a height of 60 meters.

The wall is believed by devout Jews to be the Western Wall of the Second Temple of Jerusalem (destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE), the only surviving structure of the Herodian Temple built during the realm of Herod Agrippa (37 BCE–4 CE) in the first century BCE.

After the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 A.D., Jews were not allowed to come to Jerusalem until the Byzantine period, when they could visit once a year on the anniversary of the destruction of the Temple and weep over the ruins of the Holy Temple. Because of this, the wall became known as the “Wailing Wall.”

This Wailing wall is situated in and as the part of that Temple.
