Outside The Wall
Outside the walls is a vibrant city of education, museums, markets, and places of religious significance. Jerusalem also serves as the capital of Israel. Jerusalem was founded as the City of David in 1010 BCE, but there's evidence of settlements there going back all the way to 4500 BCE. That means that Jewish people have continuously lived in Jerusalem for more than 3,000 years
The Golden Gate, as it is called in Christian literature and one of only two that used to offer access into the city from that side. It has been walled up since medieval times. In Jewish tradition this is the gate through which the Anointed One (Messiah) will enter Jerusalem. In relation to the Muslim belief Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah, it is suggested that Suleiman the Magnificent sealed off the Golden Gate to prevent a false Messiah or "Antichrist" coming through entrance.
