The Damascus Gate
For many believers, the way to the Wailing Wall leads through the Damascus Gate and the Arab quarter. The most elaborate and beautiful entry into the Old City is the Damascus Gate on the northern wall. Directly underneath the Damascus Gate, archeologists discovered the northern gateway of the Roman Aelia Capitolina. On the outside, wide rows of steps lead down to a beautiful, spacious plaza which was used as a meeting place and as a market place in which vendors sold and displayed their goods.
