Comments:
A sign of the Jerusalem "The Built Heritage" series, a project initiated by architectural historian David Kroyanker in 1993, in which buildings of historic value were commemorated in central Jerusalem.
The signs were designed by Harel Designers Office, and the logo is in the form of a relief of a rosette window ("Rosetta").

The building was photographed that day Click for a larger image

The symbol of the "Imperial Russian Orthodox Palestine Society" is on the other side of the gate in the picture above, but can be seen on the tower of the "Sergei Courtyard" which can be seen beyond the gate Click for a larger image

The southern gate also appears in the list of built heritage houses Click for sign's details
