The Painted Square, as it translates from Mekhem, is the central cultural place in Little Aqahba, designed to emulate a much bigger one of the same kind back at the capital of the Tarkhanate. It is a large, open courtyard with a square channel separating inner from outer spaces. Over its alleys, more akin to floors, everything is in colourful mosaics presenting intricate plant life, the seas or horse motifs. Around the central fountain painters, sculptors, tapestry weavers and various performers like setar players, storytellers and puppeteers of shadow theatre gather, along with religious orators and philosophers wishing to share their perspective of the world. On busier days things can get motley, debates or artistic disagreements happen, and they sometimes can get heated enough for someone to land in the fountain.


The square is surrounded by a a double row of roofed arcades where merchants in precious goods like lamps, glassware or carpets and in artistic materials call you to look into their wares. An assemblage of craftsmen like jewellers or tailors are available for those who want to discuss a particular design rather than just buy something readily available in the bazaar. Here you can eat bakhlava or drink hot peppermint in between your important higher pursuits. Overall, it's an ideal place to immerse in the richness of the hybrid culture that permeates the empire of Unicorn Khans.
