Jeddah Wall and Historical Gates

The Jeddah Wall encircles the city around all sides like a ring. A Mumluk sultan ordered its construction to protect it from the raids of Portuguese invaders in their quest to control navigation of the Red Sea. Throughout the wall are seven gates linking Jeddah to the outside world, which were constructed in stages over time according to necessity. They are Makkah Gate, Shareef Gate, Jadeed Gate, Al Bent Gate, Magharbah Gate, as well as a new gate added at the dawn of the century, the Sebbah Gate.
