Bab Kissan and Saint Paul Chapel

Bab Touma, The Southern Wall of Old City, Damascus, Syria
Bab Kissan is one of the Seven Roman Gates of Damascus Old City.

Originally dedicated to Planet Saturn, the Gate today is associated with Saint Paul the Apostle who descended from it in a basket to escape Roman persecution after having converted to Christianity.

Using the original stones of Bab Kissan, a small chapel dedicated to Saint Paul was built just behind the Bab Kissan.
