Lonely Planet review for Old City Gates
Al-Shaab, Al-Shamiya, Al-Jahra and Al-Maqsab are the names of Kuwait City's gates in Safat on Al-Soor St, the street that follows the line of the old city wall ('soor' is the Arabic word for 'wall'). Despite their ancient appearance, the wall and gates were only constructed around 1920. The wall was demolished in 1957.
