As from its name the church is suspended over the old Roman gates of Babylon Fortress. The church was destroyed in the 9th century and rebuilt again in the 10th century.

The church was renovated afterwards, and several icons and decorations were added. Despite being a monument, the church is still in use and masses are frequently held.
