The ruins of an ancient amphitheater. A thousand melodius winds gather here, bringing with them countless tales, and carrying those tales far and wide.Ancient Thousand Winds Temple
Thousand Winds Temple is an ancient amphitheater in Starfell Valley, Mondstadt. It may have been used as an arena back in the Aristocratic Period, where slaves were made to fight each other for the satisfaction of the old nobles.
According to Henry Morton's notes found in the Ragged Notebook (during the quest Time and Wind) the temple was associated with not only the worship of the God of Wind (Anemo Archon), but also the God of Time.
The 'Sacrificial Series' of weapons were once used as props used in ceremonies at the temple, and their lore confirms Henry Morton's belief:
On the cliff facing the eastern sea, the ancestors worshipped the masters of Time and Anemo together. The two are intimately related, as expressed in the saying, "Anemo brings stories while Time nurtures them."
Long ago, a war waged between the Lord of Storm and the Great Wolf King of the North. Mondstadt was engulfed in blizzards, and the snow stung like sand. A group who could bear the cold no longer built a shrine high on a clifftop in the east. There, they prayed for divine mercy and protection.
- Temple of the Wolf (one-time domain)
To the east of the Temple of the Wolf is a large sundial that can be interacted with.
- Inscription: "Seeds of stories, brought by the wind and cultivated by time."
Hilichurls can be found around the sundial, and it appears to relate to the World Quest "Time and Wind."
