Lingasha was one of the largest, non-marine cities located on the planet Alonis' primary landmass. The town possessed a large tourist and diplomatic center, where many non-Alonis spent their time on the planet. The Federation Embassy was also located in the town.
During negotiations with the Alonis in 2293, Ambassadors Spock and Alexandra Tremontaine spent most of their time at the diplomatic center in the city. In the evenings, they would also take the time to visit the many bars and restaurants located in the town. (ST - Crucible novel: The Fire and the Rose)
