Israel-06621 - Gate of Mercy

PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

Gate of Mercy (Golden Gate), leading to the temple mount. It is regarded as a Holy site for all faiths - Jewish (arrival of the Messiah) and Christian (entrance of Jesus on Palm Sunday) and Muslim (site of future resurrection). It was sealed by Suleiman the Magnificent in 1541, some say to prevent the Messiah's entrance.
