Two gates in the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem are named for the Prophetess Chulda.

One of the seven women whose prophecies are recorded in Scripture, Chulda was a descendant of Yehoshua bin Nun and the convert Rachav whom he took for a wife.

Her prophecy regarding the hidden Sefer Torah discovered during the reign of King Yoshiyahu is recorded in Melachim II 22:14-20.
