Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Zion Gate has a place for the Tomb of David Tomb. It is a Gate for David's Tomb, near the Zion Tomb. It is a Tomb from Time from tomb's watch time on.

Lots of history to this place. On exiting the gate, there were three large buses loading young Israeli soldiers, who I assume undertook an activity in the Jewish Quarter. Great city views from the rampart walk on the walls adjacent to Zion Gare.

Going to Jerusalem is a very personal trip that I believe each person needs to experience for themselves. It's a wonderful place, beautiful people and meeting our Lord on a new level.

One of the 8 gates in Jerusalem with historic significance.

The Zion Gate was built in July 1540, west of the location of the medieval gate, which was a direct continuation of the Street of the Jews.

Six sentry towers were erected in the southern segment of the wall, four of them situated in the Mount Zion section.

Impressive as the Wall and all of its Gates are.

Jerusalem's Zion Gate is pock-marked with bullet holes, which bear witness to the ferocity of the battle to rescue more than 2,000 Jewish civilians trapped in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. during the War of Independence Despite heroic efforts by the Hagenah, he Stern Gang and others, the Jewish forces could not break through the Jordanian lines. The Zion Gate remained part of Jordan, until it was liberated in 1967 during the Six Dar War, and the Zion Gate has remained part of Israel ever since

Far less congested than many of the other Gates in Old Jerusalem, this Gate will lead you into the Jewish and Armenian Quarters, as well as Mt. Zion. The Tomb of King David and the Upper Room or Cenacle (location of the Last Supper) are located nearby in Mt. Zion, within the Walls of Old Jerusalem. This Gate is also known as King David's Gate.

Entering the Old Town through the gates gives the traveler the chance to see the life stream of the town. Everyone passes through the gates. As an amateur photographer, this was fascinating. Street photography requires unique photo skills. You want to fade into the background, so travel light and take many photographs. A pocket camera or DSLR with zoom lens works well. Preselect settings and then shoot. Sometimes without looking through the camera, as in shooting with the camera at your belly button. Expect to delete many shots.

Probably there are other Jerusalem Gates which are more beautiful. Most times one crosses this Gate to go to the Dormitory Abbey, to the King’s David Tomb or to the Cenacle. If you do that, you should take some minutes to observe how well the Gate is built concerning the defensive system. The angles which made part of that defensive system, nowadays, became a diving exercise for the drivers who take that entrance. Enjoy!
