Jhachalkhyn was a drow city in the Underdark.
It wasn't very clear where exactly Jhachalkhyn lay but it was far in the south from Menzoberranzan but not as far from the City of Spiders as Maeralyn was, in fact it was so near that it was considered reasonable to assume that refugees from the city would flee to Menzoberranzan, once it was destroyed.
Despite the destruction and defeat at an enemy's hand, Jhachalkhyn's political system and infrastructure proved to be rather resilient. It was still ruled by Lolth's matriarchy and had a functional merchant class.
During the Silence of Lolth, Jhachalkhyn's matriarchy lost its spells. The loss of power was exploited by the Jaezred Chaulssin fosterage under Xorthaul Barriath in the form of a streak of assassinations. This caused a shift in political power from the matriarchy to the merchant class who then became the assassins' guild sponsors.
