Dhaztanar marked one end of the Silk Road, making it a bustling epicenter of trade and commerce. The city was nestled along the eastern banks of the Semphar Water, which was a portion of the larger lake of Gbor Nor.
A typical house in Dhaztanar was two stories tall, making the state buildings appear more grand as they towered over them.
- Furdah Rustauk, the harbor.
- Dar al-Kalif, the royal palace.
- Madinat, the round city.
- Shari-souk, the market and heart of the city.
