Pantheon of Genshormen

Stained glass dominated the interior, depicting the Genshormene gods. Every inch of the remaining wall surface was brilliantly colored and richly decorated. Echoes filled the open space as they ran, inducing a strange harmony of steps. The looming statues lining the front of the chapel represented the fifteen chief gods and goddesses in the religion.
