"The tradition of funeral rite. Proper burial in the Temple of the Graces."
Hizdahr zo Loraq[src]

The Temple of the Graces is the center of worship in the city of Meereen. It is named after the Graces, the priestesses of the Ghiscari religion who dwell there. Following the dictates of Ghiscari religion, noble Meereenese citizens may be buried within the temple after the proper funeral rites are observed.



Season 4

Hizdahr zo Loraq pleads to Queen Daenerys Targaryen to take the body of his crucified father and bury it in the Temple of the Graces.[1]

Season 5

Queen Daenerys orders the body of White Rat, an Unsullied murdered by the Sons of the Harpy, to be buried at the Temple of the Graces with all honors. She is warned that this will anger the Sons of the Harpy and spark further attacks, but Daenerys says this is what she is hoping for: to draw the insurgents out of the shad, to make it easier to find and kill them in turn.[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Meereenese Temple of the Graces is a huge structure topped with golden domes. It lies to the west of the Great Pyramid.

There is another Temple of the Graces in Astapor, and presumably there are similar Temples in Yunkai and New Ghis.
