On our way to the Old City we passed the Zion Gate a while back to visit King Davids Tomb and the Wailing Wall.

During our first day of an 11-day tour of Israel, our guide took us to see the Zion Gate on the southwestern side of the Old City before going on to visit David's tomb and the Room of the Last Supper, which are located a short distance away on Mount Zion. This gate leads to the Jewish and Armenian Quarters.... More

I love to enter the Old City via the Zion Gate and always take visitors through this gate on their 1st visit as one can visit David's Tomb and the Upper Room on the way and also see the evidence of the 1967 battle that left the walls scarred. Also a short way to the lovely Jewish Quarter and Hurva... More

This is the main entrance between the old city and new city of Jerusalem. It is the closest gate to the western wall, (wailing wall), which Jews consider the last remaining wall of the 2nd Temple. It is unfortunately a fair walk to get to this gate, but worth it.

So close to the Kotel (Wailing Wall)..right into the Jewish Quarter But not easily accesable by foot or by bus. In contrast to jaffa Gate which is east to get to an then a ten minute walk to the Jewish Quarter / Kotel

The main gate from the new city to the old city of Jerusalem. There are many shops and eateries and you can feel the history as you enter.

The Zion Gate is worth a stop for photography but is really only a point to pass by or through for visits to the Old City. I prefer the view of most of the other 7 gates. One interesting point is that you can see the bullet holes in the gate from the 6-day war in 1967.

Zion Gate is one of original 7 entrances to the Old City of Jerusalem situated on the southwest side of city walls. Gate is well- maintained and leads now to the Armenian Quarter and is near the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. There is some vehicle traffic still allowed through this Gate from the innercity and out of citywalls, we saw... More

This is a beautiful gate to this ancient city! I was surprised that it was so crowded the day we visited. Maybe it is because of the snow in Jerusalem.

I love the Gates to the Old City. Our Guide made history come alive at the Zion Gate where modern struggles and battles took place.
