Essos and the location of Vaes Graddakh

Vaes Graddakh is a ruined city in northern Essos along the shore of the Shivering Sea. It is situated at the eastern end of the Sarne delta, southeast of Morosh and east of Saath.[1] It was originally called Sarys, but it is now known by its Dothraki language name, Vaes Graddakh, meaning "City of Filth".[2]


Sarys and its sister city, Saath, fought the Ibbenese for control over the mouth of the Sarne on several occasions.[3]

Sarys was the last city of the Kingdom of Sarnor to be conquered by the Dothraki during the Century of Blood. It had already been largely abandoned by the Sarnori, however, before Khal Zeggo sacked it and put it to the torch.[2][4]
