Jurene is a small village with wooden houses and thatched rooftops. None of the buildings are more than one story high. A single stone dock caters to the river traffic.
When the Blue Crane runs up on a mud flat, Egwene al'Vere, Elayne Trakand and Nynaeve al'Meara are put ashore and walk to Jurene. While in Jurene, they secure passage to Tear aboard the Darter. Later, while in Tel'aran'rhiod, Nynaeve attempts to flee to Jurene from Moghedien, thinking that Jurene is a place that Moghedien would not know. Moghedien, with her better knowledge of Tel'aran'rhiod, follows Nynaeve anyway.
