Zion Gate, Jerusalem

Also known as David's Gate or the Jews Gate for it is the main entrance to the Jewish quarter. This gate was built strategically when the entrance to it is in a 90 degree angle to make an attack on this gate much harder. 

The Stoned wall around the gate are filled with bullet holed from the fierce battles of the War of Independence. In this war when the city was under blockade the 'palmah' broke through Zion Gate into the Jewish quarter to bring in reinforcement.

There is a memorial post on the gate which describes this historic braking but on the 28th of May 1948 the Jewish quarter was conquered and all the Jews left there were either captured or fled through Zion Gate.
