Ancient gate to Old Jeddah
Nov 2019
This is one of the few remaining parts of the ancient wall that surrounded Old Jeddah. It's not really in the best condition and is surrounded by traffic, but is still worth a quick look when you're already in the area.

There are not much to do but take a photo of the gate if You like. In the past people on their Hajj used to go through this gate. All bus routes are passing this place so it is easy to reach even if You don't like walking or having a taxi ride.
