The Golden Gate

Dating back to Umayyad times, the Golden Gate's two vaulted halls lead to the Door of Mercy, Bab ar-Rahmah, and the Door of Repentance, Bab at-Tawba. Imam al-Ghazali is thought to have written his Revival of the Religious Sciences while living above these gates and teaching in Al-Aqsa.
