The temple is situated in the center of a lush park-like courtyard and has only a single entrance which faces south towards Mournhold's Royal Palace. The entrance leads to a reception area, where Fedris Hler can be found. Doors lead west to the Office of the Lord Archcanon and east to the infirmary. There is a third door that leads north to the High Chapel where Almalexia resides, but access is by invitation only. The Archcanon's office and the infirmary both, also, have an access to the High Chapel and the Hall of Ministry. The ministry has passages down into the temple basement.
This is the first area accessed when the temple is entered. Fedris Hler can be found here.
Office of the Lord Archcanon
This is where Galsa Andrano is located.
The chapel can be reached from any of the four main areas of the temple but the main entrance is in the reception area. Within this large domed room surrounded by pillars, the goddess is guarded by the Hands of Almalexia, her elite guard. Entrance to the High Chapel is forbidden without invitation from the goddess. It will be accessible at the end of the quest "Barilzar's Mazed Band."
Hall of Ministry
Is a living area, that leads from the temple to its basement. Nerile Andaren can be found here.
Despite having two entrances from the Hall of Ministry above, the area is always void of guards and other Characters leaving the Nerevarine alone to investigate the numerous containers found here. Among the more than fifty crates and assorted urns, sacks, and baskets there is a wealth of alchemical ingredients for the taking. In the center of the southern portion of the basement is a trap door leading to Old Mournhold's temple sewers.

- Almalexia will not appear in the high chapel if console commands are used to gain entry without proper progression of the main quests.
- If the console command
coc "Mournhold Temple"is used, the high chapel will be displayed but it will be named Mournhold Temple and near the center of the room there will be the Life Ring floating near the ground. No characters will appear and all the doors will now be wooden, opening only to blackness. The main entrance that would have been coming from Reception Area is just a black gate shaped area.
