Like the Riverhaven Town Hall, the Riverhaven Temple is in Town Square on River Road. The Square is a large park with shady trees, while the Temple itself (albeit its outer facade is nothing special architecturally) is noted for its graceful gardens and well-tended lawns.
Features of the Riverhaven Temple
The Riverhaven Temple contains a well-concealed favor-producing altar in the Temple Gazebo. It looks like this:
Gleaming softly in the warm glow of the candlelight, the altar shines with a faint pearlescent light. Tiny offerings of flower petals lie strewn across the altar's surface.
The window is framed in cedar and plated with fine glass. It looks to be newly cleaned.
The candles vary between fresh and burning down to nothing. Oddly, there is no accumulation of wax beneath them on the niche ledges.
Altar of Divyaush
The tapestry depicts a merry bearded man of middle age with merry twinkling eyes and a wide grin. He is sitting on the ground amidst a circle of laughing children while a welkin looks on quietly.
You can also check the altar and see if it's a bit dusty.
Statue of Eylhaar/Resurrection Site
The stunning white statue depicts a beautiful woman with raised arms reaching out over the water. She has a look of pure joy on her face, as if reaching out to embrace a loved one long gone. Tears drip slowly down her pale stone cheek. Hidden amid the reeds at her feet sits the smiling figure of a jackal, curled up in a nap.
The shallow waters of the pool are as clear as glass, revealing the carefully placed stones forming the pool's bottom. The stones fit together like pieces in a puzzle, and yet don't seem to have been cut in any way. You wonder at the patience and devotion needed to fit together such an intricate pattern.
The figures depict two women sitting side by side atop vine covered thrones of wood. The woman on the left is older, but still beautiful, and holds some half-finished knitting in her lap. A large tabby cat seems to be fighting with the knitting for a space to lay down. Her face is set in a beatific smile as she looks down at you. The woman to the right holds her head bowed, and tears stream down her troubled face. She cradles a young child in her arms, and a dove is perched on her shoulder.
This large flat rock is for placing offerings of food or flowers before the image of the goddess.
Shrine of Harawep
The statue is ancient, and covered in cobwebs and dust. As you look closer, you begin to wish it were more fully covered. It depicts a female figure advancing towards you with two jagged blades held out before her. The woman's face is that of a hag, with her features contorted in a fearsome grimace revealing rows of sharklike teeth. A huge spider rides atop her head like a helm, and her robes bear the design of an hourglass on the front.
