The walls around the Old City of Jerusalem were built in the 16th century by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Eight gates were constructed within the walls. Seven of the gates are open and serve as passageways to the Old City.

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 Damascus Gate from 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 passes northwards through Nablus.

Archaeological excavations have revealed gates from former periods beneath the Damascus Gate built in the Ottoman period; in the lower layer are remains of a first century BCE gate built by King Herod in the Second Temple period, and above are 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.
