Damascus Gate, Jerusalem Reviews
The Damascus Gate is one of the many gates that lead into the old city. From here you can travel to the Western Wall. The pathway is through the Arab shuk inside the old city. It is one of the more attractive gates into this historic area. My three star rating is based on the fact that this gate is often the scene of violence and the visitor needs to exercise caution.
Mega fun. Big demonstration. Good Israeli military services. Annoying Arab presence
Great view of Jerusalem from this location. Perfect for selfie and other pictures. Only negative was an old man offering camel rides because the camel was in poor health and obvious pain.
