"The moon. Halin Azucca. The Opposition. Again. And it's worse this time."
―A guard, about an attack seen from the Grand Hall's viewscreen[1]

The Grand Hall of the Pijali monarchy was located on the Inner Rim planet Pijal within the royal palace. The hall was located next to the throne room of the Pijali monarch and had a viewscreen. By the time of the Republic Era, a guard working for the royal guard captain Deren was stationed at the hall's viewscreen to monitor the increasingly violent protests blamed on the Opposition performance troupe.[1]

While working in the Grand Hall[1] in 40 BBY,[2] the guard watched an explosion destroy a Czerka Corporation factory on Pijal's moon—an attack that was secretly conducted by blackguards loyal to Pijal's crown princess, Fanry. The guard informed Pijal's Jedi Lord Regent Rael Averross of the attack and the Opposition's alleged involvement, prompting him and his courtiers to enter the the Grand Hall and view recordings of the destruction.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Grand Hall appeared in Master & Apprentice, a 2019 novel written by Claudia Gray.[1]
