ShiKahr was a major city on Vulcan, located on the edge of Vulcan's Forge and ten days travel, on foot, from the L-langon Mountains. (TAS: "Yesteryear")

ShiKahr is the location of the ShiKahr Academy, where Tolaris taught prior to his becoming a V'tosh ka'tur. (ENT: "Fusion")

Future Starfleet officer and Federation Ambassador, Spock, was born in ShiKahr in 2230. Sarek and Skon, Spock's father and grandfather, were also both residents of Shi'Kahr. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights"; TAS: "Yesteryear")

A holoprogram available to crewmembers of the USS Enterprise-D featured a "Shi-Kar desert survival" on Vulcan. (TNG: "The Emissary")

The USS ShirKahr was named after the city. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

ShiKahr, as it was spelled in the script for "Yesteryear", has also been spelled "Shi'Kahr", "ShirKahr", "Shirkar", and "Shi-Kar".
ShiKahr, or a very similar looking city, is shown in the background in the remastered version of "Amok Time".
The script and production report for the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "The Forge" (at StarTrek.comwbm) establish that the United Earth Embassy was in Shi'Kahr. According to senior illustrator John Eaves, both the embassy and the Vulcan High Command building were supposed to be in the same city as each other. [1]
