Damascus, Syria - Ancient Walls and the Bab Sharqi Gate

Damascus, Syria - (left) Ancient Wall - connected (in some way) to the flight of Saint Paul, forced to flee the city under the cover of night after explosive reactions from Jews opposed to his teachings. He was lowered down from a window in the wall (this one perhaps?), in a basket, aided by his disciples. (right) The Bab Sharqi (The Eastern Gate), also known as the Gate of the Sun, is one of the eight ancient city gates of Damascus, Syria, and the only original Roman gate still standing. Date: circa 1910s
