Jaffa Gate (Hebron Gate)

Throughout the ages, pilgrims from all over the world have come to the Jaffa Gate. Emperors passed through the gate and General Allenby received the keys to the city when it was conquered (1917). Jaffa Gate is one of the most important sites in Jerusalem, strategically situated on the western side of the city wall, adjacent to the Tower of David. Today, the Jaffa Gate serves as a gateway from the Old City to the western side of Jerusalem. As part of the Mamilla Project, Mamilla Avenue was rebuilt as a pedestrian walkway, with a mall that includes restaurants, coffee shops and prestigious stores. It stretches from Agron Street to the Jaffa Gate and serves as an access route from the center of Jerusalem to Jaffa Gate and the Old City, alongside the Jaffa Road promenade from Zahal Square
