Shallecheth, the Gate

Additional Links

("overturning".) 1 Chronicles 26:16. Botcher translated "refuse door." The gate was at the road of ascent from the middle valley of Jerusalem to the western side of the temple court. This ascending causeway is still existing, though hidden by the houses in the valley. So the Shallecheth gate is the bab Silsileh or Sinsleh, which enters the western wall of the Haram area opposite the southern end of the platform of the Dome of the Rock, 600 ft. from the S.W. corner of the Haram wall. (See TEMPLE; JERUSALEM.)
