Takodana was a largely uninhabited planet in the Western Reaches, its primary inhabitants were a group of loosely aligned traders, pirates, criminals and other various shady Spacers that congregated at the castle of Maz Kanata.
In ancient times, the planet was a battleground between the Jedi Order and the Sith Order. At some point after this conflict, a castle was built on the battle-site. Roughly 1000 years before the Destruction of the Hosnian system by the First Order, the pirate Maz Kanata moved into the castle and established a neutral haven for different people from the shadier parts of galactic society.
Throughout its long history, the planet managed to remain neutral and spies on all sides frequented Maz's castle. During the Galactic Civil War, a conflict between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance erupted on the planet, but the neutrality of Maz's castle was maintained.
Three decades later, after escaping First Order troops on Jakku, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Finn and Rey made their way to Maz's castle to seek help. There, spies from both the Resistance and the First Order spotted them and reported back to their contacts. Soon thereafter, a First Order task force arrived, blasting Maz's castle to pieces and assaulting everyone present. The Resistance arrived soon after and routed the Order, but not before Rey was taken captive by Kylo Ren and transported to Starkiller Base.
