This gate once gave emperors access to the monastery for them to pray or when they would visit on August 29 which is the feast day commemorating St. John the Baptist’s execution. The gate is slightly hidden from view behind the Armenian Church of Surp Havhonnes which opens on Sunday mornings and is worth a visit.
