The moon Ardhi.

Ardhi is one of the five moons of the gas giant Macad, in the Jadi system. It is notable for being the homeworld of three sentient races: the Huragok, the Sangheili, and the Kahini (aka "Prophets"). It was colonized by Forerunner when the Sangheili and Kahini were primitive nomads (approx. 100,000 BCE), and they were regarded as gods by them.

Notable Locations

  • Mitto province - A section of territory historically owned by the Sangheili
    • Mitto City
  • Forerunner docking complex


In the creation myth told by the Sangheili race, Ardhi and the other moons were once part of a solid Macad. The Creator soon bored of the single orb and struck it with his sword, throwing five shards from it. One of these shards he transformed into Ardhi, the land where his creatures would dwell. He sliced into his flesh and allowed his blood to pour into its cracks, becoming the lakes and rivers from which life would arise.


The Ardhians use a twenty-four hour time expression based on the rising of the sun.

  • "Ardhi" is Swahili for "Earth." It has been suggested that a sentient race's name for their planet will always mean the same thing.
