Kirkwall's chantry towers above the estates of Hightown, rivaled only by the Viscount's Keep. The chantry serves as a symbol as much as it does a place of worship: a symbol of the Chantry's importance in the tradition and the lives of Kirkwall's citizens, and its iron grip on the mages.
The chantry was constructed by the dwarves and originally served as a wealthy magister's estate during the Tevinter Imperium's rule over Kirkwall. It was rebuilt and converted into the city's religious center after the slave uprising.
