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. The north wall of the city runs along the river bank of the Skahazadhan, the river that flows through the city. Its west wall runs along the shore of Slaver's Bay. The sewers of the city empty out into the Skahazadhan. It is ruled by the Great Masters. It has wide brick streets and the fighting pits are red.
The Great Pyramid is eight hundred feet tall and topped with a bronze harpy.
