K'un-Lun is the stronghold of a colony of humanoid aliens, place of origin unknown, whose spaceship crash-landed upon a small, extradimensional world, approximately a million years ago. The ship's warp-drive engines somehow created a permanent, oscillating rift between the pocket world and Earth's dimension, causing the settlement to shift into Earthly space periodically on a site in the remote Himalayan Mountain range in Tibet. The K'un-Lunians built a city around their inverted spaceship, cannibalizing materials from its interior and using its basic design as their architectural style. No citizens alive today are aware that the Central Hall of Ancestors was once the spaceship that bore them to their world. Now that the mystical emerald crystal that regulated the dimensional matrices had been broken (by K'un-Lun's adopted champion Iron Fist), the duration of this period of K'un-Lun's interface with Earth is not known. Apocryphal stories about K'un-Lun told by travelers gave rise to the Chinese legend of the same name. Over a millennium ago, the dragon Chiantang destroyed K'un-Lun in a fit of rage. Recently Chiantang again attacked K'un-Lun, wreaking great devastation and killing most of its people. The rest of the population fled to safety.
