Bel Yarnak is a world beyond Betelgeuse and the giant suns on which Iod is worshipped. In fact the planet is unnamed, and Bel Yarnak is the main city, but there is no reason why the planet cannot be so termed. The city of towers and minarets, the reptilian Galaks are used as beasts of burden, and the city is famed for its necromancers and hyromancers. It was ruled by the Sindara. The city was destroyed when the priests of the Black Minaret evoked the god Droom-avista who petrified the city until it became known as Dis, the City of Iron.
