The ancient Canaanite gate, called Abraham's Gate, in the ruins of the Old Testament city of Dan in the Tel Dan Nature Reserve in Galilee in northern Israel.  It dates to approximately 1700 B.C., or the Middle Bronze Age, and was constructed of mud bricks.  The opening of the gate was filled in in modern times to prevent its collapse.
