The walls around the Old City of Jerusalem were built in the 16th century by the 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 Jaffa Gate, the inaugural release of the Gates of Jerusalem series.

The Dung Gate is the lowest of the gates and is in the southern wall of Jerusalem, closest to the Western Wall. Being near the Moroccan neighborhood, it was known as the Moroccan gate in Arabic. It was referred to multiple times in the Book of Nehemiah in the era of the Return to Zion.

Ashes from sacrifices and ceremonies and general waste were taken through the Dung Gate, which is where the name is derived. The Dung Gate was originally built just large enough to allow a person and animal to pass through. In 1952, the Jordanians widened it while paving a road. The arch above the Dung Gate shows the Star of David, signifying the original gateway width. After the Six Day War, the gate was renovated and preserved by Israel.
