Damascus Gate from the air. The walls of the modern gate follow the outline of the older gate buried beneath (see plan). The eastern tower juts out from the wall on the left side of the gate, and the eastern side-archway, now the entrance to the museum, may be seen in the shadow between this tower and the pedestrian ramp leading to the center archway. The Moslem Quarter of the Old City lies beyond the wall, across the top part of the photo.
