The Meridian Gate controls the primary route of entry to the Carja capital of Meridian. The gate itself is little more than an archway with a watchtower. However, the pathway from the gate is a wooden bridge, connecting the mainland to the mesa where Meridian is located. The ground nearby the gate is surrounded by the wares of artisians hoping to sell their products.
The Meridian Gate was constructed sometime after the founding of the Carja, made to control access to the mesa. Until the construction of the Meridian elevators, the Meridian Gate was the only way to access the city.
During the Meridian, the Meridian Gate was one of three locations where Avad's forces targeted their efforts. To get past the barricades, the gate was destroyed by Oseram cannons. On Avad's orders, the shots on the gate were the final shots fired at the city. Following the ascension of Avad to the throne, the gate was rebuilt.
