This gate is convenient to reach the Via Dolorosa (although one will first reach one of the middle stations), Western Wall and Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Unfortunately the area outside of the gate was not clean.

Usually I enter the Old City via Jaffa Gate because of the convenient parking lot under Mamila Mall. But, this time I arrived at the Old City via the light rail and felt like taking a different route into the markets. It is always special entering the walls via this ornate gate. However, no matter how much effort has been invested in making the approach attractive and comfortable, the litter and filth always seem to take over. Such a pity.

this is another historic entrance to the Old City. Easly reached on the city tram. It costs nothing to visit and takes you into an important part of Old Jerusalem leading you to the Wall, Dome, etc
