The Shrine of Kynareth is a shrine in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Kynareth is the Goddess of the heavens, the winds, the elements, and the unseen spirits of the air.

Physical appearance[]

The shrine looks like an owl mounted onto a pedestal. The whole sculpture has a light purple tint to it. According to Hearthfire, the main body of the owl is made of iron, the beak is made of sapphire and the eyes are two moonstones.

Blessing effects[]

Activating the shrine confers the Blessing of Kynareth for a duration of eight hours.

Only one blessing (effect) can be active at one time. Praying at a different shrine will remove this effect.
