Vaes Khewo is a ruined city in Essos in the western Dothraki Sea, in the southern Kingdom of Sarnor. It is connected by a Valyrian road to Vaes Khadokh. It was originally called Sarnath, but it is now known by its Dothraki name, Vaes Khewo, meaning "City of Worms".
Located on the Sarne, Sarnath of the Tall Towers was the seat of the High King of the Sarnori, who dwelled in the fabled Palace With a Thousand Rooms. The city was destroyed by the Dothraki during the Century of Blood following the Doom of Valyria.

Behind the Scenes
Vaes Khewo has not yet been mentioned in A Song of Ice and Fire, only appearing in The Lands of Ice and Fire and A World of Ice and Fire. Its original name, Sarnath, may be a reference by George R. R. Martin to "The Doom that Came to Sarnath" by H. P. Lovecraft.
