Streets of Jerusalem 7: Damascus Gate 16" x 20"
I captured these two men in conversation at the steps leading down to the Damascus Gate, the main entrance into the Old City. In its current form, the Damascus Gate was built in 1537 under the rule of Suleiman the magnificent, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Underneath, remains of a gate dating to the 2nd century AD have been excavated.
