Zahar is a populous city in the night side of Albacin III. It boasts some of the latest technology available to the planet, and it is considered an exotic resort city receiving most of its revenue from tourism. It is located approximately 230 miles west of Vanda.

Geography

Although Zahar is surrounded by vast sheets of ice, the city was built over a geothermal vent that created a series of hotsprings. As a result, the temperature is constantly 70° F year round.

Layout

The city consists of sprawling skyscrapers built over a large, hot spring lake formed by damming a meltwater river flowing from the day side wetlands. The Zahar Dam powers the entire city with electricity though to save on electricity costs, it is customary for households to plant glowing mushroom trees as a means of both decoration and lighting.
