In Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, Tar Valon is the ancient city of the Aes Sedai. Tar Valon is home to the White Tower where women learn to channel Saidar, the female half of the One Power. Tar Valon is situated on an island in the middle of the River Erinin. Tar Valon is one of the few Ogier built cities left.
Egwene al'Vere left the Emond's Field to train to become an Aes Sedai at Tar Valon.
