Beautiful but crowded
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on February 14, 2020

Walking through this gate brings you into the Arabic world of Jerusalem. All the gates are watched by police and the entrance can be quite busy and narrow because of all the shops.

A magnificent gate

From all the Jerusalem gates, this is probably one of the most used nowadays and, looking at its majesty, it happened the same along the centuries. Not only the gate’s architecture looks great but also the area before entering the gate helps to make it more splendorous. Enjoy!
