Jaffa Gate (Bab al-Khalil) Tours

star-4.5
7 Reviews
Jaffa Gate (Bab al-Khalil)
During the sixteenth century the Ottoman Turkish sultan Suleiman rebuilt the Old City walls of Jerusalem and included six different gates into the Old City. Jaffa Gate (Bab al-Khalil) is one of the originals, named after its orientation, pointing toward the harbor of Jaffa in Tel Aviv.

This gate on the western wall comprises the original dog-legged pedestrian tunnel leading into the Old City, as well as a car-friendly passage constructed in 1898 to allow German Kaiser Wilhelm II to ride into the city.

As the main entrance into the Old City, the gate makes a perfect starting point for modern-day explorations. Just inside the gate sits a lively souk which leads into the Christian and Jewish quarters.

Practical Info

You’ll find an official tourist office just inside the gate to the left.
Address: Jerusalem, Israel

Jerusalem City of Myth

Jerusalem City of Myth

star-5
Our tour of the Old City takes in all four quarters and key sites including the Western Wall, the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Jaffa Gate. Throughout, our focus will be on understanding why this small area of land on the edge of the desert has been so fiercely claimed by Jews, Christians and Muslims, and why today it is so fiercely contested by Israelis and Palestinians. What can we see today that might help us explain how it came to be this way? Why are its holy sites so important? How did its four quarters come into being and how do its different groups interact? And what is its relationship with the new city which surrounds it? Along the way we'll take the time to experience the immense beauty of the Old City and its buildings, viewpoints, coffee-houses, and hummus joints.
