This is a fortress formed from a section of the rock wall of Thuyakalrul that 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 equivalent to those that are found in every city of the Guarded Land. The difference here is that its Legate controls a fleet of barans instead of huimur.
