Ruined Temple


The Ruined Temple is the dilapidated remains of the Temple of Andraste. Sitting high atop the frigid Frostback Mountains, the temple's interior is swathed with sheets of ice and snow. Nevertheless, considering the number of years since Andraste's followers roamed its halls, the temple is remarkably intact.

Even though it was once the sanctuary of the followers of Andraste, the temple has become the sanctum of the Cult of Andraste, a society composed of the violent, dragon-worshiping inhabitants of the Village of Haven. The Temple is built into the mountain itself, extending deep into its caverns, which lead to the Mountain Top.
