dc.descriptionOverall view showing crenelated stonework on wall and quoins decorating gate, looking north towards Notre Dame de France guesthouse on Paratroopers Rd.; The New Gate is the newest gate in the walls that surround the Old City. It was built in 1889 to provide direct access between the Christian Quarter and the new neighborhoods then going up outside the walls. The New Gate was built at the highest point of the present wall, at 790 meters above sea level. It was built under the administration of the Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II, who allowed the building in response to petitions by the Christians.
