The Temple of the Ancestor Moths is located at the far eastern end of the Jerall Mountains range and northeast of the Shrine of Azura; it sits in a valley cleft. It is a favored location for Ancestor Moths, which are abundant there.

The only significant plants here are a few clouded funnel cap by the stairs leading to the temple grounds.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Temple of the Ancestor Moths is a small settlement consisting of a well-built chapel Temple of the Ancestor Moths, alongside a rough hermitage for monks Monk's Quarters, a small graveyard and the Ancestor Moth Crypt.

The area is tended to by Brother Hridi and Brother Hjar who work outside until 6PM and then head to the Monk's Quarters. Brother Holger spends time in the chapel or the crypt and returns to the Monk Quarters after 7PM.

It is recommended to leave the whole area alone until the relevant quest as entering certain doors will trigger quest updates which can mix up the Thieves Guild questline.

Quests[edit | edit source]
