Pillars of Salt
Status Destroyed
Position Mahri Nui

The Pillars of Salt were a range of mountains on the Mahri Nui landmass.


These mountains were a part of the natural underwater terrain of Aqua Magna. They were formed over several centuries from salt deposits in the Black Water.

After the Great Cataclysm, the Pillars of Salt became the preferred hunting ground of both the Barraki Pridak and his army of Takea.

Pridak interrogates Defilak at the Pillars.

When Mahri Nui tumbled into the sea, the Pillars of Salt survived the impact and were located to the south of the Mahri Nui Fortress.[1] However, because of the presence of dangerous Rahi, they were never extensively explored by the Matoran of Mahri Nui.

When the Kanohi Ignika arrived in Mahri Nui, Pridak took the captured Matoran leader Defilak to the Pillars for interrogation. From this vantage point, the Barraki was able to show his army of Takea to the Le-Matoran as an intimidation tactic. When Barraki Kalmah was threatening Dekar for the Kanohi Ignika, it enlarged a Venom Eel into a 300-foot long mutant. On its way to attack Mahri Nui, it sheared one of the Pillars of Salt.

The Pillars of Salt were later destroyed when Voya Nui returned to its original position on the Southern Continent and smashed the Mahri Nui landmass.
