Fountain Gate

Additional Links
A city gate at the southeast corner of the walls of ancient Jerusalem (Nehemiah 2:14 ; Nehemiah 3:15 ; Nehemiah 12:37 ), probably so named because people brought water from the En-rogel or Gihon springs into the city through this gate. The gate is possibly identical with the “gate between the two walls” (2 Kings 25:4 ; Jeremiah 39:4 ; Jeremiah 52:7 ).
