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. It is walled and gated from the rest of the city, with ornate gateways. 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.
↑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."
