Central Square

Central Square

Mets Tagh (Big District) is where most of the town is situated, shoehorned between the fortress walls on streets that climb the slopes of Mt. Achakar.
The town’s Central Square includes a massive tree stump with a sapling growing in its middle; the stump is all that remains of a 500 year old tree that marked the spot where David Bek and his forces reconnoitered to plan the defense of the town.
