The Temple of Light was a religious institution on Marjoin.
At some point during the Idiran-Culture War, the Temple was used by a sect of a militant faith espoused by one of the planet's nation states. The Temple found itself in a precarious position when war, inspired by the greater galactic conflict, broke out between that religiously-inspired country and a vaguely socialist country. The Temple was located near the border of the two warring states and the priests and monks armed themselves for protection.
That same year the Temple was raided by Kraiklyn's Free Company. The raiders were unaware of the geopolitical situation and thought the now-fortified Temple to be an easy target. The Company was repelled without achieving its objective. A particularly unexpected problem was the crystal material of the buildings which rendered the attackers' lasers useless. The defenders had armed themselves with projectile weapons.
The Temple complex consisted of a collection of low, slope-sided, buildings and short towers surrounded by a wall. The outer wall face was seven metres tall and sloped at about 40 degrees. At the top was a broad wall walk and another similar wall going up to the next storey.
The interior of the temple was constructed of laser-reflecting crystal.
Much of the exterior and interior walls were covered by naturally growing moss.
