Meereen is a large city that lies on Slaver's Bay. It is renown for trading in slaves.

The city, like its sister cites, Yunkai and Astapor, is made from bricks. Here they are multi-colored. The walls are high and at every corner there are defensive towers. The city is dominated by Great Pyramid.[1]

Great Pyramid

The Great Pyramid is eight hundred feet tall and topped with a bronze harpy.[2]

Slaves

Slavers in Meereen only cut off the testicles when making eunuchs, compared to Astapor, where they cut off both penis and testicles.[3]

Ser Jorah advised Khal Drogo to drive his slaves to Meereen since it had suffered from a plague recently.[4]
