Jaffa Gate, Jerusalem

Jaffa Gate was the main gate of the old city of Jerusalem along the years. It is located in the western wing of the walls right next to David's tower and citadel. This Gate leads the way to the main which led to Jaffa thus its Hebrew name. The construction of the walls was between 1535-1541 and when it was finished it surrounded and protected the population of Jerusalem. In a garden near to the gate two Ottoman style graves are found.

'Legend' says that these are the graves of the two engineers who are responsible for constructing these amazing walls. The wall's promenade start at Jaffa's Gate heading north, while the southern entrance is by David's tower. From the Jaffa Gate Plaza there is a terrific views to the north and west where the tower of David, the famous windmill, the King David Hotel and the Jerusalem's city center can be seen. From this plaza there is a passage to the new and fabulous Mamila Shopping Center.
