Herod's gate to be re-inaugurated

Herod's Gate, more commonly known as Sha'ar haPrachim (the Flower Gate), will be re-inaugurated tonight (June 28, 2010) as part of a larger conservation plan of the Old City.

The gate was first inaugurated in 1539 CE.

The gate was was named Herod's gate either due to a mis-attribution, or alternatively in Herod's honor.
