The Moslem Quarter North of the Temple Mount
Tour of the Moslem Quarter north of the Temple Mount, areas in which gypsies, Indians and Persians lived during the Middle Ages. Learn about historical buildings in this area - domes, madaris, fountains and minarets. Visit Bab Huta - the Forgiveness Gate - which gives its name to this neighborhood in the Moslem Quarter; the Madrasa al-Dawadariyya and the Madrasa al-Salahiyya (the Church of St. Anne), both used for holy studies of Islamic writings; and King Faisal Gate through which the King of Iraq entered the mosque.
Additionally, there may be a meeting with a representative of the local community who will tell about life in the quarter today.
