KUWAIT: Al-Maqsab Gate is one of the five main gates that used to provide access to Kuwait City in its early days along with the gates of Bneid Al-Qar, Shamiya, Shaab and Jahra. It is located in Kuwait City near the Holy Family Cathedral, positioned on one end of Soor Street which once encircled early Kuwait City. Al-Maqsab Gate has been refurbished and serves as a historical monument to Kuwait’s trading past. — Photo by Fouad Al-Shaikh
