Hyderabad was once surrounded by stonewalls or gateways or darwazas. Many of them have been brought down by the Mughals or destroyed by the floods in 1908 and only two survive, this one and Purana Pul Darwaza. However the areas surrounding where the walls once used to be are still called Darwaza eg Lal Darwaza, Fateh Darwaza etc
