Herod's Gate , or as known in Arabic as Bab Al Sahera, is located in the northern walls of the old city of Jerusalem, and is a short distance to the east of the Damascus Gate. This gate leads to the Muslim Quarter near the Pools of Bethesda.

Herod's Gate was first built by the Fatimids, renovated by the Mamluks, and once again by Suleiman the Magnificent during the Ottoman Empire.
