Dung Gate Name
The name Sha'ar Ha'ashpot appears in the Book of Nehemiah:3:13-14. It is probably named after the residue that was taken from the Jewish Temple into the Valley of Hinnom, where it was burned. This ancient "Dung Gate" may not have been in the same location as the modern gate.
The name Mograbi gate (Bab El Magharbeh) is called after the Moors' history in the area.
