Heart of the Arab quarter

You can get a good coffee just inside the gate and watch the Arab population of Jerusalem going about their business. There are some great Roman ruins just outside the gate and downstairs.

Another Reality

It is like entering another realm going through Damascus Gate. There is a heavy security presence - VERY HEAVY. This should alleviate most concerns for tourists, however, still have your streets smarts. It is a very other worldly way of entering the old city.

Impressive Gate
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on November 22, 2019

This gate was the one we went through to Via Delorosa and other important parts of Old Jerusalem. Looks very impressive, but you will find the inside of it even more impressive. Passed through it many times, including 5 am. Sometimes very crowded, always safe.
