This is the prettiest gate of Jerusalem, but it is crowded with market-type stalls right inside the gate which make it hard to walk through as there are many people in the way

The Damascus Gate is one of the original eight gates leading into Jerusalem's walled Old City, now within the Muslim Quarter district. Also known as the Shechem Gate (or Nablus Gate), there is a flurry of activity from the foot traffic through the gate, as well as the merchants selling their wares. We accessed the Garden Tomb and Golgotha located nearby, outside the wall, through the Damascus Gate. The imposing Damascus Gate and wall surrounding Jerusalem's Old City are quite impressive from the exterior stairs, which lead up to the streets of Jerusalem.

This is a beautiful gate which it's history traced back to the 16th century and beyond the gate is the market within the Old city of Jerusalem.
