Lion's Gate in Jerusalem
The Lion's Gate is one of the active gates of the Old City of Jerusalem. Built in the 16th century, the Lion's gate was designed and constructed by Ottoman Emperor Suleiman the First. Located in the south-east corner of the Old City, the gate serves visitors to the Western Wall, Al Aqsa Mosque and the Temple Mount. It is also located across from the Mount of Olives. The Lion's Gate is recognized by the statue of two identical lions on either side of the gate.
