Damascus gate is the main gate in the along the northern wall of the old city of Jerusalem.

It serves mostly the local Arab Muslim population of Eastern Jerusalem, and untill 1967 was next to the border between Israel and Jordan.

It’s current shape and design is from the Ottoman period, yet it’s foundations are from Roman times.
