Bromjunaar Sanctuary (also known as the Dragon Priest Shrine) is a decayed shrine found within the ruins of Bromjunaar in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The decayed shrine is located inside the decrepit central barrow to the east of the entrance of Labyrinthian. Access is gained by simply entering the small barrow and following the path around.

Wooden Mask[]

A Wooden Mask can be found within the barrow near some skeletal remains and a mysterious note.

Wearing the Wooden Mask within the barrow sends its wearer back to a time before the destruction of Bromjunaar Sanctuary. The central focus of the sanctuary is the restored Dragon Priest Shrine. To exit the sanctuary, simply take off the wooden mask.

The restored Dragon Priest Shrine displays the busts of eight dragon priests found throughout Skyrim.

On defeat in combat, any named Dragon Priest will drop the mask that they wore. These masks can then be brought to the shrine and displayed on their respective bust on the shrine.

A bust is available for the following masks:

Once all eight of the masks are placed on their respective busts in the shrine at the same time, the final mask, Konahrik, is revealed. Then all of the masks, including Konahrik may be taken in any order.



  • When the Wooden Mask is worn in the Sanctuary, the lighting is different than that of outside. There are also a few empty chests and urns placed around the room.
  • When the Wooden Mask is worn to teleport the player back to a different time, note that it is not possible to leave the room in which the Shrine is located; there is an invisible wall in the doorway preventing the player from leaving. To leave, one needs to take off the Wooden Mask.
  • If all of the masks are put in a chest while in the past, they will be impossible to retrieve without using the console command coc labyrinthianpriestsanctuary.
