View, looking south, at the eastern section of the moat that surrounds a good portion of the Citadel located at Jaffa Gate. On the left (east) is the modern road while the stone embankment that rises on the right (west) side of the image supports the citadel itself. Note the gate tower and bridge just above the center of the image.
