Double Gate

Description

This reconstruction model shows the Double Gate in the Southern Wall of Herod’s Temple Mount in Jerusalem. A 210 feet (64 m) wide stairway led up to this gate from the lower plaza. Because of its monumental proportions, this gate was probably used by most of the pilgrims going to worship at the Temple.
The interior of this gateway is beautifully decorated and some researchers have proposed that it was the Beautiful Gate of the Temple, mentioned in Acts 3.10.
