Palm Sunday

5 April 2020

The Old City of Jerusalem is surrounded by a large wall which has eight major gates. The Eastern Gate, known by Christians as the Golden Gate, is the only gate that faces the Mount of Olives. This is believed to be the gate Jesus passed through on what has come to be known as Palm Sunday. This gate gave the most direct access to what would have been the area of the Jewish temple. The exterior of the gate has been walled up since medieval times.
