The Golden Gate is the oldest of the gates in Jerusalem's Old City walls. It has great religious significance: it is said that Jesus passed through this gate on Palm Sunday, and in Jewish tradition it is through this gate that the Messiah will enter Jerusalem. The gate is thought to have been sealed from as early as 11th century during Arab occupation of the city, to prevent the entry of the Messiah.
