A remarkable structure. Quite Impressive when when considering how old it is and its role in History. You can start your exploration of the old city through here and come out at the western wall. There is a bus stop 2 mins away where you can catch the #1 to the Central bus station. If you exit through the Damascus Gate your best option will be the light rail
A beautiful gate. It can be a bit crowded and some of the stairs are tall. It may not be the most handicap accessible place in Jerusalem. Expect a lot of people selling wares as this entrance leads to the Muslim and Christian quarters of the city. It may be too crowded and you’ll need to find another way out.
Amazing place to visit. The old city is a great area to experience which is full of greatory of all faiths and great architecture. Visitors from all areas of life and countries come here. Damascus gate is one of the gates into the old city. Many shuttles from Tell Aviv airport stop at this destination for a little as £15 (approximately)
This is a unique experience for people who are not used to this part of the world. This gate leads to a bazaar that is teeming with people. You are also hit with a heady mixture of colors and smells! This gate can take you to the Western Wall and to the Via Dolorosa. Must try the road side foods especially falafel and sharvma.
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.
