Bab El-Sahireh

The name of this gate translates as "the Gate which watches" or "flower Gate." It is also called Herod's Gate because pilgrims were convinced that the house next to this gate belonged to king Herod Antipas. In the middle of the last century Ibrahim Pasha, the son of the Khedive of Egypt, partially bricked it up.
