The Gates of Jerusalem have become an icon of the holy city and an attraction for tourists from all over Israel and the world. Start your journey through the city's history with the Jaffa Gate, the inaugural release of the Gates of Jerusalem series.
The Damascus Gate is considered the most impressive gate among the eight gates in the walls of Jerusalem that were built.
The gate was named after the northward route from the gate that led to Damascus. In Hebrew, it is called Nablus (Shechem) Gate for the same reason; the route northwards passes through Nablus.
Archaeological excavations have revealed gates from former periods beneath the Damascus Gate built in the Ottoman period; in the lower layer, remains of a first century BCE gate built by King Herod in the Second Temple period, and above, remains of the gate from the Roman period. In the early Muslim period, changes were made in the structure of the gate. In the period of the Crusaders, the gate was blocked and a new gate was constructed on a higher level, further north.
