Mamluk Architecture in Old City Jerusalem

Just off Via Dolorosa, in a small alley I was drawn time and again to a special portal which has a particular qualities and ancient door.  Recently thank to Simon Sebag Montefiore, 
in his Jerusalem documentary, it was possible to ascertain that the door and entry are rare remnants of genuine Mamluk architecture from the 13th century AD.
