The Gate of the Wind, or Bab il-Hawa, was the first gate of the great fortress of Sarahin.[1]


The Gate of the Wind appeared as an archway framed by two large carvings of desert giants holding the central portion of the gate aloft.[1]

Once beyond the gate, a narrow curving path led to the fortress of Sarahin. Mules and donkeys could easily navigate the path, but horses and larger animals had to be led by hand.[1]


The giant carvings of the gate were actually real desert giants who sprung forward to challenge anyone who approached unbidden. They answered to Mamoud ibn Asra and had a deep hatred for all genies.[1]
