Herod’s Gate

Gates of the Old City

Herod's Gate

Herod’s Gate is known in Hebrew as the “Flowers’ Gate.” The English name is a misnomer as the gate has no relation to Herod the Great and his kin known from the New Testament. Located on the northeastern side of the Old City, the gate leads into the Muslim Quarter.
