Kholinar palace is described by Eshonai in stages. She takes in the lower level and finds it to be marked by broad hallways and galleries, lit by carefully cut gemstones that make light sparkle. She notes that chandeliers hang above her as broken suns spraying light everywhere.
Further, she notes that the upper floors are more like tunnels. Narrow stone corridors, rooms like bunkers dug into a mountainside. In passing several rooms, she notes that there is one with paintings on all the walls, then one with a bed and furniture. Another door reveals an indoor privy with running water, which - to her - is a marvel she doesn't understand.
