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.
Built before the other main gates, the Golden Gate in the Jerusalem Old City Wall was built in the 7th century over ancient ruins with a Byzantine style. Some think it might predate as far back as the time of the first temple. The gate faces the Mount of Olives and is the closest gate to where the first temple originally stood. Followers of Judaism believe the Messiah will enter through the Golden Gate. According to tradition, the Prophet Elijah is said to pass through the gate first to notify the coming of the Messiah. To prevent this, Ottoman Sultan Suleiman sealed the gate in 1541 and also placed a Muslim cemetery close to it to prevent Elijah, of priestly descent, from passing through. The Golden Gate also derives its name from the belief that Christians think that Christ entered Jerusalem through it.
