The Lions’ Gate in Jerusalem
The dream that became a reality
One of the most famous symbols of Jerusalem is the beautiful wall that surrounds the city. But Jerusalem did not always have a wall! 500 years ago, Jerusalem did not have a wall. Jerusalem was not a capital city back then but rather a part of a huge kingdom, headed by the great ruler - the Turkish Sultan Suleiman.
According to the legend, one day the Sultan Suleiman had a dream in which two lions were about to devour him. The Sultan woke up in alarm, calmed down and tried to continue his daily routine. But the next night, the Sultan again had the same terrible dream, and so on again and again night after night. Finally, he summoned his wise men and asked - why am I dreaming this awful dream? The wise men replied: Within your vast empire there is one city, Jerusalem, and it is a holy city. If you build a beautiful wall surrounding the city - the Lions will stop coming to devour you in your dreams! Immediately thereafter the Sultan Suleiman commanded to build a wall with 7 gates. On one of the gates he had the image of the two lions from his dream engraved, and since then they did not come to devour him .. Neither in his dreams nor in reality ...
