Golden Gate, Jerusalem, Israel
The Golden gate It is regarded as a Holy site for all faiths – Jewish (arrival of the Messiah) and Christian (entrance of Jesus on Palm Sunday) and Muslim (site of future resurrection).
The Golden gate is located on the east walls of the old city of Jerusalem, leading to the temple mount. The gate was built in the 6th/7th C AD over the ruins of the second temple gate, and sealed since the 16th C.
A gate was located on the eastern side of King Solomon’s temple (10th C BC), and called the “east gate” (“Kadim” in the Hebrew Bible). Its location was probably at the vicinity of the Golden gate, inside the temple
