Bab El-Rahmeh

The Golden Gate has been bricked up for more than a millennium because a Muslim tradition holds that one day a conqueror will enter through this gate to destroy the city. Another Muslim belief is that the double opening (one is called Bab El-Tawba or (Gate of Repentance) and the other Bab El-Rahmeh or (Gate of Mercy) will be the first to open before the Messiah on the day of the Resurrection.
