The Temple of Melitele in Ellander just outside the main city is quite possibly the best known place set up in the goddess' name. A poplar-flanked road leads from the gate to the buildings near the sanctuary and the main temple block which is built against a mountain wall. There are gardens and outbuildings, a greenhouse hewn from rock and roofed over with crystal.
Nenneke rules this place, honouring the policies of Duke Hereward when it suits her fancy, tending to the wounded and the sick, helping with childbirth and training new priestesses of Melitele. It was here the Ciri began her instruction under the watchful eye of the priestess. Later, her studies were overseen by Yennefer.
- The framing story of The Last Wish-collection, The Voice of Reason, takes place mostly in the temple grounds.
Unlike in the books, the temple was burned down and all the priestesses within slain.
