Chachin is the capital city of Kandor, as large as Tar Valon or Tear. Closeness to the Blight prevents it from being a true centre of commerce, but the merchants have a strong reputation and it is a wealthy city (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 28). It is built in a mountain range, the three highest peaks of which are over a mile high and have their peaks sheared off. The city is surrounded by a deep drymoat a hundred paces wide, spanned by two dozen bridges, each with a fortress at its mouth. The city itself is also surrounded by three towered ringwalls, each a hundred paces apart. According to the law, Chachin itself does not start until the inner wall (NS, Ch. 22). The city was built after the Trolloc Wars, Ogier having no hand in it (LoC, Ch. 20).
Home of the Kandor royal family. It is situated atop the highest mountain in Chachin and shines brightly red and green in the sun. It is a large structure, almost a small city in itself, with many domes and high balconies (NS, Ch. 22). Inside the palace, the servants livery is also red and green.
