This hill across the street and to the side of the Damascus Gate of the Old City has been described as a probable site of Golgotha, the skull shaped hill.  The other probable site was the church of the Holy Sepulchre that was begun during the time of Constantine in the fourth century and is currently within the walls of Jerusalem.

The exact location of the outer first century wall of Jerusalem was disputed.  Some have described a corner of it close to the current Damascus gate others have placed it further south closer to the Jaffa Gate. 

This hill is behind the Arab bus station in East Jerusalem across the street from the Turkish walls of the Old City and "Solomon's Quarries".


  "Gordon's Calvary" c. 1900 -- The cliff face appears like a skull.
