  1. The Bab ul Amound is one of the main gates in the magnificent walls of Jerusalem’s Old City which stretch for 12 miles over an area with a diameter of 2.5 miles. The walls rise to an average height of 40 feet, and a width of more than 7 feet. It contains 43 surveillance towers and 11 gates, seven of which are presently open.

    The walls were built by the Ottoman under the direct supervision of Sultan Suleiman Al-Qanouni in 1542.
