Sabil Bab Hitta
Sabil Bab Hitta (Arabic: سبيل باب حطة)
It's also known as Sabil 'Ali Effendi Jar Allah -سبيل أفندي علي جار الله.
It's called Sabil Bab Hitta because it's located as a cavity in the eastern wall of Bab Hitta, also situated to the left of the stairs leading to the washroom of Bab Hitta . It's construction was during the Ottoman period.
It's a small fountain with pointed arch that covers the Sabil's basin and above the arch there are horse's teeth decoration which characterizes the Ottoman buildings.
Dr. Haithem Al-Ratrout states "The slightly pointed arch is widely employed by Umayyad buildings such as the Umayyad Great Mosque of Damascus (c. 705-715 AD), Qusayr ‘Amrah in Jordan (c. 712-715 AD),Hammām al-Sarkh in Jordan (c. 725-730 AD), Qasr al-Hayr in Syria (c. 728/9 AD), Mafjar near Jericho (c. 739-743), Mushattā in Jordan (c. 744 AD) and Qasr al-Tūbah in Jordan (c. 744 AD)"
'Ali Jar Allah son of the Mufti of Al-Quds donated the Sabil in the year 1060 AH/ 1650 CE since there were many properties belonging to his family between Bab Hitta and Bab Sharaf al-Ambiya - باب شرف الأنبياء (Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa Al-Mubarak by Muhammad Hashim Ghushah), hence the reason it was also known as Sabil 'Ali Effendi Jar Allah.
It was finally repaired by Al-Aqsa foundation for the reconstruction of Islamic Holy sites during it's recent construction of the nearby lavatory unit and was rendered ineffective permanently after that.
