The Pelepelplû, or "Strongflow," was the traditional capital of the region. Built on a collection of nine terraced hills, it was linked to the neighboring mountains by a collection of six, multi-tiered aqueducts. The elevated waterways were paired and linked in order to increase their stability. Besides conveying water from no less than three highland streams, they acted as dual-level highways. Encircling the city, they also served as fortifications. Each was a marvel of engineering and a testimony to the High-kings who had commissioned their construction. The six monarchs-Ganashôshyn, Shôbûragan, Ganakhyn, Ganshô, Tasagana, and Ganagan (in chronological order)-were all buried in towering tombs astride their respective aqueducts. Their monuments comprised six of the eighteen "Spires of Strongflow" (Ch. "Pit-apo-Pelepelplû").
