3rd in the "Views of Jerusalem" Numismatic Bullion Series
Throughout history, Jerusalem has been enclosed by a wall for defense. The Walls of Jerusalem that exist today were built between 1537-1541 by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent during Ottoman rule, where the walls of the city stood in the Second Temple period. The walls measure about 4 km in length, their average height is about 10 m and thickness is about 2.5 m. Along the walls are 34 watch towers and 8 gates. 7 of the 8 gates are open and serve as passageways into and out of the Old City – Lions Gate, Dung Gate, Zion Gate, Jaffa Gate, Damascus Gate, New Gate and Herod's Gate. The eighth gate – Golden Gate – is blocked and, according to Jewish tradition, will open miraculously when the Messiah comes and the dead are resurrected.
Crowning the beauty of the unique holy city, the walls built by the Sultan were probably more for the purpose of embellishing it, rather than for defending it. The walls and gateways are decorated with floral and other artistic shapes which are carved into the stone.
Today, the Walls of Jerusalem have become an icon of the holy city, an attraction for tourists from all over Israel and the world. A walk along the walls is a special experience that provides beautiful views of Jerusalem.
