Tradition says that the Sultan's prophetic dream caused the construction of the fortress walls around Jerusalem. Sultan dreamed lions were chasing him, and there was nowhere to hide. One of the courtiers interpreted this dream as the need to create a shelter. Since the lion is the oldest symbol of Jerusalem, Sultan decided to construct the fortress walls around the eternal city. In 1898, to the right of the Jaffa Gate, Turks chose to create a wide entrance to the town on the eve of the visit of German Kaiser Wilhelm II in Jerusalem. And almost 20 years later, in 1918, English General Allenby entered the city during a magnificent ceremony opening the era of English rule. Immediately inside the gate, a staircase rises to the left. Do not miss a municipal toilet after one staircase.
