Damascus Gate, Jerusalem | Israel Top Attractions

Damascus Gate, Jerusalem

Damascus Gate, Jerusalem

Built in 16th century during the time of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, Damascus Gate is one of the most impressive and beautiful among the gates of the wall surrounding the Old City. It's one of the main entrances too. 

Because of its strategic location, many guard towers and observation points decorate the gate. 

The gate's two towers come with machicolations, a floor opening where stone and boiling oil are poured down enemies and invaders. Today, what was once used a weapon has become a point of interest. There are plenty of other features that make Damascus Gate worth checking out. 

From the courtyard, the gate splits into two commercial streets--Khan A- Zeit or Beit Habad street on the right and El Wad Street or Hagai on the left.

La Vacanza offers a visit to the gate as part of private day tours and guided tours. With the latter, you'll get to see other gates such as the Jaffa Gate and various other tourist attractions within the Old City of Jerusalem. You may even get to take a hike down Kidron Valley or the Valley of Judgement and up to Mt. Zion. Suffice it to say that Damascus Gate is the gateway to fun and excitement during your holiday in Jerusalem.
