    The entrance of the parking lot after the wall (West) and Mount Zion. Exit and entrance with car. Because transportation is a 90 's face and the car almost screech. This is where the last desperate attempt and Palmach to join abba_child the old town (walled in selling the pills and the explosive charge). In 1948. Armenian quarter and close to the top of the Jewish quarter (habad Street).

    From above, so I don't know the gate, but overlook the views of the city. Easy-to-understand so walking the ramparts points listed a guide plate yourself walking anywhere.

    Church of Maria passed away, King David's Tomb, passed in front of the gate on the way to Church St. Peter's. I thought somehow gate walls full of holes bashed in, or did you get this weathering. Local guide got in and according to the description in a gun battle in Middle East war 3 wall hole is made in countless. Now that you mention it, was convinced. Okay, apparently bent to the right aisle and darken the inside of the gate. Then, to have countered the handle last-minute long narrow gate passage car rubbing so entranced.

    4 - for problems with parking. Like always. Nice place to start journey to old city if you so lucky to find a parking space. Parking isn't​ free.

    Beautiful southern gate of Jerusalem old city, has a synagogue, beautiful church and mosque and lovely south ward panorama

    This gate shows history, war, and has a great view from on top of it. Leads right from Mt Zion to the Armenian quarter. Bullet holes throughout the gate are from the '67 war.

    This is the safest gate to the old city of Jerusalem. Having said that, you can still see the bullet markings on the wake of the gate.
