Zions GateLocated in the south, this was one of the main gates used by the Israel Defense Forces in 1967 to enter and capture the Old City. The stones surrounding the gate are still pitted by weapons fire.

Bearing Jerusalem’s earliest biblical name in Hebrew and English, this gate’s Arabic name is the Gate of the Prophet David, as the Tomb of King David, on adjacent Mount Zion, is only a few steps away. Zion Gate leads directly to the Armenian and Jewish quarters.
