Ramesses II's gate garden


The garden is located in the south-east of Jaffa, the entire location was destroyed by the British forces during the British mandate in Palestine between 1917-1946, during the 1950s the area was a criminal part of Jaffa with drug trafficking and prostitution

During the 1960's archaeological excavation exposed parts of an Egyptian triumphal gate from the 12th century BCE or the times of Ramses II,
the gate is exclusively evident to the Egyptian period over Cnaan just before the philistine got a hold of the southern coastal plain including Gaza, Ashkelon, and Jaffa.


Today you can see the remains of a restored gate and stones covered with clay together with an altar of a lion that looks like a sphynx worshipped by the Egyptians in the early stages.

The area is open and you can walk through the gate, also access is very easy from the observation point of Jaffa, the Flea market, or the Jaffa hotel.
