The Stilshrine of Miriam is a location in the land of Ivalice in Final Fantasy XII. It is a temple located in snowy mountains, housing a powerful artifact.



The Stilshrine of Miriam is located in a territory near the Paramina Rift. Flying there is normally impossible, so the characters are forced to cross the Paramina Rift, exiting from Mt. Bur-Omisace, and seek out the Sword of Kings, a sword which can cut a piece of Deifacted Nethicite or destroy it.


Not much is known about the Stilshrine. It is named after an ancient god of swords and martial might (also referred to as a goddess elsewhere in the game). It was built during the time of the Galtean Alliance, by the Gran Kiltias of that time. The Sword of Kings rests, sealed deep within. No one knows why the Sword was left with the Gran Kiltias and not kept by King Raithwall himself.


The Stilshrine has a design similar to other places built during the Galtean Alliance, like the Sochen Cave Palace. Unlike other buildings from this era though, it is in much better condition, thanks to the effort of the Kiltia. The guardians of the Stilshrine even consist of the walls themselves. The technology to do this has since been lost.

For the Sage Knowledge on the Stilshrine of Miriam, you may also see Sage Knowledge piece 78.

"An ancient shrine deep within the Jagd Ramooda. Like Raithwall's tomb, this, too, was constructed in the time of the Galtean Alliance, originally to honor the ancient god of swords and martial might. It is said that a Gran Kiltias of long ago selected the Stilshrine to house the relics of Dynast-King Raithwall, though why he chose this site, and not a temple of his own sect, is unclear."
