Dung Gate

Gates of the Old City


Dung Gate


The Dung Gate today provides the easiest access to the prayer plaza at the Western Wall. Different theories have been proposed as to how the gate originally acquired its name, including one that rubble was carried through this gate after the Muslim conquest of the city in AD 638.
