Paterdomus, or Temple of Saradomin, is the temple marking Misthalin's eastern border. It acts as the gateway into Morytania and is located on the River Salve. The priest Drezel is the owner of the temple, although it also plays host to some unwelcome Monks of Zamorak, as discovered in the Priest in Peril quest. It is labeled "Temple" on the world map.


Long ago the Seven priestly warriors held back the forces of Lord Lowerniel Vergidiyad Drakan and sanctified the River Salve. The Paterdomus temple was built on the site of this famous battle.



The basement of the Temple is only accessible if you have started the Priest in Peril Quest. It has a combat level 30 Temple Guardian and is one of two ways into Morytania. In the quest In Aid of the Myreque you will be able to unlock the secret library filled with books. In addition the well is a key feature of the temple.

Ground Floor

The ground floor of the temple has been captured by Monks of Zamorak.(For killing these you will receive only 25% of normal experience.)Also on this level is an Altar. Just outside of the temple is an agility shortcut.

Temple Trekking / Burgh de Rott Ramble

The Paterdomus temple also plays a role as the finish line in the Temple Trekking / Burgh de Rott Ramble mini-game for villagers and a starting point for Mercenaries.

The Odd Old Man really has something for bones. And even stranger about him is the talking sack on his back. He might even like you to collect bones for him in the Rag and Bone Man quest.

Various quests can be started in Paterdomus and the surrounding area or a large part of the quest is located here. These include:
