The Crusaders called the place "Trenta", while the Arabs "Kelaat a-Tantura" (pointed hat) as well as "Al Burj" (the fortress) or "Burj al-Habib". The Hebrew name "Titura" (the hem of the hat), was given to it by the government naming committee, and it preserves the sound of the name in Arabic and its meaning. The earlier name of the site is not known for sure. Botany and Zoology
