From the Time of King Hezekiah

Here you see the two outer gatehouses, one on top of the other. look through the scope to get an idea of the size of the lower gatehouse. It was built at the time of King Asa (908-867 BCE) or King Jehoshaphat (870-867 BCE), and continued in use during the time of King Hezekiah (727-698 BCE), and until its destruction by the Assyrian King Sennacherib, in 701 BCE.

The upper gatehouse, through which you will enter the city, was apparently built at the time of King Josiah (639-609 BCE) and was destroyed by the Babylonian army at the time of the destruction of the First temple (586 BCE).
