Saikhoi was the capital city of Ra-Khati.[4] Formerly known as Thakos, in ancient times it was the capital of the eastern Imaskar Empire[1][5] and of the successor empire Anok-Imaskar.[6]

HistoryEdit

Ancient HistoryEdit

After the land of Khati was annexed by the Imaskari during the height of the Imaskar Empire (−7975 DR to −6788 DR),[1] the city of Thakos rose as the capital of the eastern empire through the Middle Kingdoms period (−6422 DR to −4370 DR).[1][5]

The Imaskar Empire fell in −2488 DR, but the eastern provinces Khati and Katakoro emerged relatively unscathed. Thus, in −2487 DR, Kujawa claimed the Dragon Throne in Thakos and declared himself Emperor, founding a new realm, Anok-Imaskar, with Khati at its heart.[6] Kujawa died fighting a great t'ien lung dragon in −1943 DR. His death led to the empire fracturing into warring states, among them the new independent realm called Ra-Khati.[7]

In the centuries to come, however, Thakos would fall into ruins. In −1377 DR, Tan Chin dug through the ruins of Thakos and discovered potent Imaskari artifacts, with which he seized the throne of ancient Shou Lung.[8]

In time, the city would be rebuilt and become known as Saikhoi.[1]

GeographyEdit

Nestled deep within the Katakoro Shan range, Saikhoi sat between the two sacred lakes of Norasil and Manasowar.[2]

InhabitantsEdit

Saikhoi was the home of the ruler of Ra-Khati, the Dalai Lama.[4]

Rumors and LegendsEdit

Any outsider who saw the sacred city of Saikhoi was never permitted to leave.[9]
