The Wailing Wall is actually a small portion of what remains of the outer retaining wall surrounding the Second Temple in Jerusalem. King Solomon built the First Temple in the 10th century BCE. It was destroyed in 586 BCE by the Babylonians. The Second Temple was built on the same ground in 516 BCE and was vastly enlarged and beautified by Herod in 20 BCE. The Temple was again destroyed, this time by the Romans in 70 CE. All that is left of the vast Temple structure are portions of the retaining walls.
