The tower got its name because a procession from the Kremlin to the Upe passed through its gates. In the XVIII century, it was called the Resurrection, because of the Church of the Resurrection , which was located on an island between the river beds.
The Water Gate tower, like other Kremlin travel towers, is square. It is located in the northeast wall of the Kremlin. The upper tier of the tower is not connected with the walls of the Kremlin and you can get on it only from a combat move, which adjoins the walls at the tower. A passage to the Kazan embankment is open through the tower.
