It is located near the Temple on the northeast side of Jerusalem not far from the Sheep Gate. “After him repaired Malchiah the goldsmith’s son unto the place of the Nethinims, and of the merchants, over against the gate Miphkad, and to the going up of the corner.” (Nehemiah 3:31-32).

It was at the Miphkad Gate where David decided the take a census of Israel which was against what the LORD God told David.  It was as a result there was 70,000 killed by a plague.
