Besides its interesting architecture, this gate (a.k.a. called Lion's Gate) leads into the Old City to the Virgin Mary's birthplace and the first station of the cross on the Via Dolorosa. Walk in the opposite direction to reach Mary's tomb and the Garden of Gethsemane, the site of Jesus' agony, on the Mount of Olives. Awesome location and experience.
