Golden Gate (Bab Al Rahma)

» » » » Golden Gate (Bab Al Rahma)

Golden Gate (Bab Al Rahma)  is one of the four gates of Jerusalem that remain closed today. It has been walled up since medieval times, in fulfillment of prophecy (Ezekiel 44:1-3). Jews believe that this gate will be opened when the "Messiah" returns, and Muslims believe that the Just will pass through it on the Day of Judgment, while according to the Christian faith, Jesus entered Jerusalem through the gate.

As known in the Jewish tradition as Mercy Gate, is the only eastern gate of the "Al Haram Al Sharif" Compound, and one of only two that used to offer access into the city from that side.
