Western Essos and the location of Sarhoy

Sarhoy is a ruined city in Essos at one of the four mouths of the Rhoyne.[1] It was destroyed by the Volantenes and the Valyrian Freehold.


The Rhoynar built Sarhoy as a great port city made of pink stone with canals and saltwater gardens. During the Second Spice War, three dragonlords and men from Volantis sacked the city. The city's warriors were slaughtered and its children sold into slavery. The Volantenes burned the city and salted the earth. After further defeats, Princess Nymeria led her ten thousand ships down the Rhoyne past Sarhoy and into the Summer Sea.[1]

According to Maester Yandel, Sarhoy "remains in ruins to this day, a desolate and haunted place."[2]
