Mughrabi Gate

The Mughrabi Gate

The Mughrabi Gate is located on the north side of the Wailing Wall, directly over the Herodian-period gate known as Barclay´s Gate. Over the years the ground level outside Barclay´s Gate rose by many meters above its threshold and was finally walled up in the 10th century. Later in the 12th century a new gate called Bab al-Maghreb was installed at the level of the Temple Mount esplanade. The Gate is open until today and the only entrance to the Temple Mount for non-Muslims.

Here, Dieter Cöllen is going to create a miniature of the gate (scale 1:75) in order to integrate it later into the wall.
