One of the most intriguing gates in the old city of Jerusalem, the Golden Gate is one of the 4 sealed gates of the old city.
The Jewish Scripture says that a Prophecy exists where the sealed Gate will Open when the Messiah arrives. During the 7th century, the gate was sealed by the Moslems to untrue the Prophecy.
To add to the delay in the Prophecy, a cemetery was built right in front of the gate since the Jews believe that anyone who passes through a cemetery becomes unclean and hence would not be able to be a Messiah!
