Eastern Gate to the Temple Mount by 


Eastern Gate to the temple mount, through which,
it is said, Jesus will re-enter the temple when he returns. It was
walled in centuries ago by muslims. The muslims won’t let you get
this close to it any more. Inside the gates, there are still stone
stairs from the walled in gate up to the level of the temple mount
(which is now a muslim mosque). There is another mosque dug out underneath the temple mount, where supposedly there are still today muslim archaeologists destroying any evidence of the original temple.

The West wall of the Temple Mount is said to be what was left of Solomon’s original Temple after it destruction.

jerusalem, wailing

I graduated from CSUC in 1998 with a bachelor’s degree in teaching but am currently a full time student in the vocational nursing program and am due to graduate hopefully, November 2014. I have loved taking photos for as long as I can remember.

    Nice image but to be exact, this is the “Golden gate” and it is NOT pat of the wailing wall.

    What is Jerusalem’s Golden Gate?:

    The wall surrounding Jerusalem’s Old City has 11 gates, seven of which are open: Jaffa, Zion, Dung, St. Stephen’s (Lions’), Herod’s, Damascus (Shechem) and New. The most famous of all Jerusalem’s gates may be the Golden Gate, which is sealed.
    here is more info from wikipedia.
    Thanks for sharing with the art of the Middle East group.

    The Golden Gate, which is unusual in that it is sealed so that no one can pass through it today, was originally built around 640 CE by either that last of the Byzantine rulers or the earliest Arab conquerors. Of the eleven gates in the walls surrounding Jerusalem’s Old City, only seven are open and this one cannot even be seen from the inside.

    Why is the gate sealed? Jewish tradition has it that the Messiah would enter Jerusalem via this gate when he comes, so Muslims during the reign of Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (1520-1566) sealed this gate to keep him out.
