Saqqar was an icy planet that was located within the Saqqar system in Hutt Space, a region of the galaxy controlled by the Hutt species. The planet lay on the hyperlane called The Dead Road, which connected it to the worlds of Tisht and Usk. A smaller hyperlane linked the planet to the world of Nar Haaska.
The surface of Saqqar was covered in snowy plains, where colossal ruined towers were visible that were left behind by an extinct civilization. Saqqar was orbited by a half-derelict orbital station that served the needs of the occasional starship traveling along The Dead Road. The Kajidier kajidic, a Hutt clan, had influence on Saqqar.
