The Gate of Dawn is the only remaining old city gate in Vilnius. It is located to the south of the old city. It has a history of nearly 500 years. The Church of the Virgin Mary above the Gate of Dawn is very small. The famous Black Faced Madonna is the Pope Paul In the church where King II visited, many devout Catholics come to the church to pray and participate in Mass every morning and evening!
It is said that there were originally 9 gates, but now the only one left is the Gate of Dawn. There is a very majestic church on the side, and there is a chapel above the city gate. I saw someone praying. There is a Lithuanian emblem on the outside of the city gate, which is said to be only visible here during the Soviet era.
This church is open to the public and can be seen from a distance on the street. The inside of the Gate of Dawn is more beautiful than the outside, and the decoration inside is very beautiful. When you entered, it happened that some believers did not pray beside the statue of Our Lady.
To go up the side door of The Church of St Theresa, I almost missed it! Beautiful statue of the Virgin, devout believers kneel down to pray, not embarrassed to take pictures, a little regret
The Gate of Dawn in Lithuania, also known as the Sunrise Gate, is an ancient city gate in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. It was built in 1522 and served as a defensive function. In 1671, Catholics built a small church on the city gate to enshrine the image of the Virgin Mary, which is said to have extraordinary magical powers.
