What is Shallecheth?
        (a casting down), the name of a gate of the temple. 1 Chr 26:16. Literally, it means the "gate of projection" - that is, from which were thrown out the sweepings, ashes, and offal of the temple. The causeway was made by Solomon from his own palace by way of the Tyropoeon valley to the western wall of the temple; to this causeway the gate led, Grove would identify it with the gate Sinsleh, at the western wall of the Haram enclosure, 600 feet above the south-western corner.
