    LandmarkHistory:
    At al Umayyad time mostprobablyduringthereign of Abdul Malik bin Marwan.

    Reason of the name:
    In thepast, it wasnamed “thetriple Gate” because it consists of threegates.

    Builder Name:
     TheUmayyad (Abdul Malik bin Marwan).

    Additional Information aboutthelandmark:
    -ThesegatesservedtheIslamicneighborhoodslocatedsouth of themosquewherethegateswere 3 timeslong (similartotheDouble Gate corridors) underthelevel of themosqueleadstoitsyards.

    Closingthe Gate:
    There is a commonsayingthe Gate closedafterSalahaddinliberation, and has circulatedinformationaboutallclosed Gates, However, there is nohistoricalevidencetosupportthis Saying.

    Proof of inaccuracy:
     -At thehadith of Ibn al-‘UmariabouttheMarwanichapel in 755 AH-1354 AD mentionedtheopened Gates whichwasleadingtothearea of ​​Silwanandwasintendedtriple Gate in 746 AH – 1345 AD.
    -TheMarwanichapelwasreacheduntiltheyear 900 AH – 1495 AD fromoutsidethe wall, fromthetripleorsingle Gate as indicatedbyHanbali.
    -Duringexcavations in theUmayyadregion, thewall of Ayyubirevealed in front of theclosedgatesindicatesthattheAyyubiesprotectedthegatesbybuilding a wall in front of them, but not closingthem as believed, It is morelikelythatthetripleandsingle Gates Completelyclosedaftertherebuilding of the wall at the time of Sultan Suleiman at thebeginning of theOttomanperiod.

    -AftertheZionistoccupation of Jerusalem in 1967 AD:
    -Followingthefailure of Jewishexcavations in thearea of ​​theUmayyadpalacessouth of the Al-Aqsa Mosque toprovinganyrighttotheJews, theyclaimedthatthetriple Gate (as well as theDouble Gate) one of theirclaimed Temple andcalledthemthe “Gate of Khaldah”, claimingthattheydiscoveredtheremains of a staircasefromthesecondtemple, leadingtothem, took it as an excusetobuild a stonestaircasealongpart of the barrier south of Al-Aqsa, andspecifically in theareabetweenthetripleandDouble Gates. 
    -TheMuslimswerealertedtothattheattemptaimed at capturingtheMarwanichapelandtheold Aqsa Mosque andturningtheminto Synagoguetofind a placefortheJewswithin Al-Aqsa Mosque, but thankstoGodthattheMuslimswereabletoreducethatdangerthroughthework of restoration of theworshipers.

    At 2001:
    Because of excavations, part of thesouthernwall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque buckled betweenthetripleandthesingle Gates, with a length of aboutthirtymeters, andthiswasthemostintenseeruptionovertherebuilding Aqsa Mosque since theoccupation.

    ThegatesservedtheMuslimneighborhoods of themosquecomplexwherethegates had threelongcorridor (similartotheDouble Gate corridors) underthelevel of themosqueleadstoitsyards.

    Closingthe Gate:
    There is a commonsayingthatthe Gate closedafterSalahaddinliberation, andpopularized on theotherclosed Gates, but there is nohistoricalevidencetosupportthisstatement.

    Proof of inaccuracy:
    In thespeech of Ibn al-OmariabouttheMarwanichapel in 755 AH-1354M mentionedopened Gates leadingtothearea of ​​Silwanintendedtriple Gate in 746 AH – 1345 AD.
    TheMarwanichapelreacheduntiltheyear 900 AH – 1495 AD fromoutsidethe fence fromthetripleorsingle Gate as pointedoutbyHanbali.
    Duringtheexcavations at Umayyadregion, thewall of Ayyubirevealed in front of theclosedgates. ThisindicatesthattheAyyubidsprotectedthegatesbybuilding a fence in front of them but not closedthem, as believed.
     It is likelythatthetripleandsingle Gates completelyclosedafterthereconstruction of thewall at thebeginning of theOttomanperiod.
