Before her lay the puzzle-box, more properly known as the Temple District, […] through cross-currents of incense, hearing the drone of chants on all sides and seeing the tangle of buildings that stretched out of sight at each crossroad, […] the feverish beat of power had now sunk to a steady pulse, it was still undeniably there.
Jame's narration, God Stalk,
"Chapter 3: Into the Labyrinth"

The Temple District of Tai-tastigon is an area in the northern part of the city, east of the River Tynnet and north of the North Fosse.[1] It is walled and gated from the rest of the city, with ornate gateways.[2] Inside, the buildings fit together "like a gigantic puzzle-box", reflecting the Tastigon love of mazes and labyrinths. Jame refers to it as the puzzle-box district at times. The temples of Tai-tastigon are all in this area except for the Temple of the Three-Faced God, the Kencyr temple, which is in the Lower Town.

  2. God Stalk, Book I: Tatters of Dusk, "Chapter 1: Out of the Haunted Lands" — "Jame turned to regard the gateway. It was set in a high wall, which extended a considerable distance in both directions and appeared to set off an entire district from the rest of the city. […] Here the buildings fit together like a gigantic puzzle-box, interlocking in the oddest ways and yet each standing by itself with no shared walls."
