Map Seven Cities detail
Karakarang was one of the Holy Cities of Seven Cities. It was located on Otataral Island in the northeast part of the continent.[1] Specifically, it lay on an outjut of land bordered by the Talgai Sea on the west, the Bandiko Sea to the north, and the Sea of Gallada to the east.

It was the Holy City of the Tanno cult.[2] A pilgrim route led to the city from Rutu Jelba and over the Talgai Mountains.[3]

Nine centuries before the start of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, the city was liberated from unknown occupiers. Quick Ben claimed a sorceress going by the name of Nightchill had been involved.[4]

In Deadhouse GatesEdit

Eleven years before the Whirlwind (around the year 1153 BS), the Spiritwalker Kimloc negotiated the peaceful surrender of Karakarang to the Malazan Empire with High Fist Dujek Onearm. Turqa, the captain of Kimloc's private guard, disclosed to Fiddler that although Kimloc could have destroyed the advancing Malazan forces, he chose to surrender in order to prevent the city from sharing the fate of Aren whose inhabitants had been slaughtered by the T'lan Imass.[5]
