Bawabbat Al-Mitwali

It consists of a great gate,Bawabbat Al-Mitwali about 4.82 m wide, and on either side of it are two great arched towers that were carved from below so that they form an arched entrance in that the shutter of the wooden door is fixed, between them is just a corridor covered with a shallow stone dome predicated on four spherical triangles. In front of the doorway was a large slide to obstruct the attackers, but it’s not present now.
