May the path bestow the favor thou hast earned. ―Wall carving

Solasan is an ancient elven temple located in the Forbidden Oasis region of the Western Approach in Orlais. The entrance to the Temple and passageways within can only be opened using the shards revealed by the Ocularum.

In the main chamber are three doors, also locked by shards, one for fire, cold and the other spirit. Approaching these doors unlocks the quests below, which are completed upon opening the doors and following the specific path to its end.

According to stories out of Kirkwall, the military leader of the Qunari spent a number of years marooned in the Free Marches city of Kirkwall – without once receiving supplies from his people or calling for help. Why he did so, and how the Qunari got along without an arishok, is unkown.
