This is a fortress that is formed from a section of the rock wall of Thuyakalrul which is hollow and contains open water. Barans can pass into this natural port from the Grand Harbour. Shiphouses cut around its edge allow the barans to be drawn up out of the water. Storerooms, the barracks for the sailors, chambers suitable for Masters as well as those used by the Legate of Thuyakalrul have been hollowed out of the rock and are linked together by military stairs. The fortress is the equivalent to those which are found in every city of the Guarded Land. The difference here is that its Legate controls a fleet of barans instead of huimur.
