Yafamen is a lively city gate, especially at night, next to the Tower of David, there is a famous lighting show. This is a gathering place for believers and tourists, with dense crowds. Next to it is a tourist center. It's not very big. You can see it carefully. It's a map of different countries.
One of the gates of the Old City of Yale, which goes into the Jewish and Christian districts, is the Tower of David.
Yafa Gate is located on the west side of the old city wall. It is very open and can be used for at least two cars to drive in parallel. However, it is not the real Yafa Gate in history. It is only a gap in the two sections of the city wall. The real Yafa Gate is located on the "prominent character" side of the city wall and opens northward.
Passing through Jaffamen (the second gate) to an open area, the Tower of David appeared. I don't know why this point didn't appear on our itinerary, and we didn't have any questions about going to Bethlehem for lunch. The direction of Yafamen to Yafa Port is not only the starting point of Yafa Road, Jerusalem's famous commercial street, but also the construction of the temple by Solomon in that year, which is to transport Lebanese imported timber to Yafa Port and into Jerusalem through Yafamen.
Jaffa Gate, the most popular city gate, may be because most of the other places in the old city are downhill after entering from here. Therefore, it is also the most dense place after the Muslim area, where only three tourist centers are located. After entering the old city from Jaffamen, the Jewish area is on the left and the Armenian area is on the right after the Tower of David. But in fact, the road in front of the city gate is still occupied by endless small shops, mostly Muslim shops. In ancient times, Jiafamen could reach Jiafa by following the road outside the city gate.
The old city of Jerusalem is not big, the roads are a little winding, everything is full of the flavor of history.
