The Vulcan monastery P'Jem.
A Klingon Monastery on Boreth.

A monastery was a community where members of a particular religious tradition live and work apart from the rest of society, while dedicating themselves to the ideals of their religious tradition. A number of races throughout the galaxy have monasteries - including Humans, Vulcans, Bajorans, and Klingons.

A notable Human monastery is the one located in Ngari, Tibet. Jonathan Archer once visited the monastery, which was the oldest such institution that he ever visited. (ENT episode: "The Andorian Incident")

The Vulcan monastery at P'Jem was over 2,000 years old by the 22nd century. At some point, the Vulcan High Command hid a listening post to use against the Andorians - when this was discovered the Andorians responded by destroying P'Jem. (ENT episodes: "The Andorian Incident", "Shadows of P'Jem")

Shortly before Kahless died on Qo'noS, he said he would someday return. Kahless picked the location at random when asked where he would reappear - pointing at a star in the sky. (TNG novel: Kahless) The Klingons established a monastery on a planet orbiting the star - which was called Boreth - in which Klingons seeking spirtual guidance would travel, hoping to have a vision of Kahless. Seeing the decline of the Empire, the monks at Boreth created a clone of the original Kahless. After Kahless, son of Kahless was revealed to be a clone, Chancellor Gowron backed Worf's plan to install this clone as the ceremonial Emperor. (TNG episode: "Rightful Heir")

Bajorans also established a number of monasteries in which vedeks and other members of the Bajoran clergy lived. The former Kai Opaka Sulan stayed at a monastery in the city of Ashalla after she returned from the Gamma Quadrant, and helped guide Elias Vaughn through an orb experience when he came to stay at the monastery while on medical leave. (DS9 novel: Unity)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about the monastery near Edgeville. For the monastery south of East Ardougne, see Monastery (Kandarin).

The Monastery (also known as the Monastery of Saradomin and the Prayer Guild) is a two-story building north-east of Falador and west of Edgeville. A combat bracelet can be used to teleport inside the monastery, and is the fastest method to get there. Monks wander inside, both in the courtyard and inside the building. It is the only place with an Altar available in Bounty hunter.

The monastery and its monks were graphically updated on 7 May 2008.



The Monastery's age is unknown, although its history suggests that it pre-dates many human settlements in Asgarnia and Misthalin. According to the novel Betrayal at Falador, the Monastery was originally a military camp created by an ancient king who sought to lead a crusade into the Wilderness. The king, however, passed away before he could begin his cleansing of the Wilderness, and the camp he left behind gradually developed into a permanent monastic settlement.

In 164, the Monastery was attacked by the Kinshra Lord Sulla, who had recently slain his predecessor and gained control of the organisation. The Battle of the Monastery was the first battle of the War of 164, and it saw the first use of Chaos Dwarf Mortars developed by the Zamorakian extremist Thorbarkin. The Monastery's residents suffered heavy casualties in the battle, but the intervention of more well-equipped fighters such as Kara-Meir, Doric, Squire Theodore, Ebenezer, Castimir, and Gar'rth gave much of the order time to escape with Abbot Langely to the then-unincorporated city of Edgeville in Misthalin. The battle left the Monastery heavily damaged, but following the war it was rebuilt.

According to the novel, the Monastery contains a library that includes extensive records concerning local history and guests. These records were partially damaged in Sulla's invasion, but most survived. The library itself does not appear in-game.

Ground floor

The ground floor of the monastery contains various decorations, benches, fountains and a cabbage spawn in the north, along with some rose bushes. It is also home to several monks, including Abbot Langley, a non-player character who makes sure that only players with a Prayer level of 31 can climb up to the first floor. He can also heal players upon request, as can any of the monks.

This is a very popular place for players for training on, as monks give good combat experience and heal players when they are hurt. Monks heal up to 16 Hitpoints each time the player asks, while Abbot Langley heals up to 12.

The monks at the monastery used to heal themselves during combat after they had taken a significant amount of damage. This made the monks on the ground floor a popular training spot for Defence pures, as the latter only has a maximum hit of 1. The monks would then continually heal themselves, making it incredibly hard for a Defence pure to kill a monk. However, this was changed in 2008 so that the monks can no longer heal themselves during combat. This modification does not appear to have ever been publicly mentioned by Jagex. Also, this update appears to have not affected the Monks on the island of Entrana, as they still heal themselves during combat.

There is a Musician just outside the Monastery, useful for recharging run energy and as another method for healing hitpoints.

First floor

Players need level 31 Prayer to go up to the first floor. The first floor contains various decorations, monks, Brother Jered, an altar, a Kharid scorpion, and the top and bottom pieces of the monk's robes set. Brother Jered does not heal players. The monks also apparently do not abide by the combat system of Jagex, because to get up to the first floor, 31 prayer is needed. The monks have 5 combat, so even if they had 1 in all combat skills, 15 in hitpoints, and 31 in prayer, their combat level should be 8.

Players should not try to pick up the Kharid scorpion, as doing so will deal them 3 damage for each time, damage incapable of being blocked by either Prayer or Magic. The only way to get the scorpion is by using a scorpion cage on it during Scorpion Catcher.

Brother Jered can bless unblessed symbols into holy symbols. He can sell members with 99 Prayer the Prayer cape for 99,000 coins. In addition, he can make Blessed spirit shields if the player brings him a normal Spirit shield and a holy elixir.

Praying at the altar fully recharges a player's prayer points, in addition to giving a +2 bonus over the player's max prayer points. This +2 boost makes it the best altar available to free players, and will work even if you possess full normal Prayer points. However, one should note that this does not, for example, enable a player with Level 50 Prayer to activate Level 52 Prayers, even with membership.

There are barrels filled with wine, multiple beds, stained glass windows, and tables for the monks to place items upon, though these are only for decoration.

For members, the poison-purging Prayer book is also found here in the The Great Brain Robbery, and can only be reobtained by going to the Monastery if lost.

Early on in RuneScape 2, the second floor of the Monastery was among the locations to which a player could be teleported if they did not respond to particular random events. This led to some non-members who had below 31 Prayer with two higher Prayer points than their maximum due to the effect of the altar located there. This meant, for example, that a level 3 non-member could have "3/1" Prayer (in other words, they would possess 3 prayer points out of a maximum 1 of point). However, teleportation to the first floor is now impossible, rendering non-members below 31 prayer with two extra prayer points highly unusual.

Brother Jered, the master of Prayer, is found on the first floor.

Monk's robes respawn on the table.

The altar here restores and boosts Prayer points.


There are some quests that involve the Monastery:


  • When you are at full prayer points and you try to recharge prayer a message will appear: "you boost your prayer points" instead of "you recharge your prayer points."
  • Taking the monk robes from the table on the first floor is an effective way of making money. Although, competition for the monk robes are sometimes extremely strong, the respawn time is relatively short, depending on the number of players in that world.
  • Brother Jered is sometimes described as the 'leader' of the Monastery.
  • This place is popular in Bounty Worlds because of the altar which boost your prayer points , however , the altar at Lumbridge is the most popular in PvP Worlds.

A monastery is a building or buildings that house a monastic orders where they live and work separate from the rest of society.

In an alternate reality, the renegade Time Lord Mortimus posed as a monk and set himself up in an abandoned monastery in the north of England when he visited 1066 and attempted to prevent the Norman invasion. (Doctor Who - The Time Meddler; Star Trek: Daedalus - Reversed Polarities)

A Vulcan monastery was located in the Gobi desert. Karak spent some time at the monastery in 2374. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "No Rest for the Wicked")

Jonathan Masters spent time at a Bajoran monastery on Bajor while on leave in late-2374. While at the monastery he was granted permission to view the Orb of Time, which was kept at that particular monastery. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Into the Fire")

Temple of the Sacred Circle


Monastery was a Mid Rim world. It was home to the Order of the Sacred Circle, an order which revered all forms of life.



In 22 BBY, shortly before the Clone Wars, Monastery opened itself to refugees of the Separatist crisis provided they agreed to convert to the Order. The Order accepted beings of any gender or species.

The House of Tagge sent Domina Tagge to the planet to join the Order. Domina's brothers thought doing so would preserve her innocence and keep her from becoming a pawn in Imperial and corporate political struggles.

Domina Tagge pitted Luke Skywalker against Darth Vader in a battle in the Crystal Valley, promising Monastery's allegiance to either the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire according to whom won the battle. Luke apparently killed Vader, but the man he killed was actually Orman Tagge, disguised as Vader.

Flora and fauna

Monastery was home to a number of dangerous creatures, such as the Nightshrike, and the Saber cat. Saber cats were able to be tamed, and the Order of the Sacred Circle kept several as pets. While on Monastery, Luke Skywalker was attacked by both a Nightshrike and a Saber cat, revealed to have been manipulated by Domina Tagge.

Behind the scenes

Monastery has occasionally been misspelled Monastary in official sources, such as the Refugee article below, but this still refers to the same world.
