Beis Horadas Hamayim

This room was called Beis Horadas Hamayim. This room served as the drainpipe for the Heichal. All the waters from the roof entered the ground through this room, perhaps to one of the nearby cisterns. The room was seventy three amos long and three amos wide. Very little is known to us about this room, since it is mentioned by name only once in the Mishnah (4:7), with no explanation.
