The Vanadwan Monastery spread across the crest of Angorseer Mountain, the tallest peak in the Releketh Range, on Bajor. At its highest point, its circular Inner Sanctuary reached farther skyward, its nine spired towers representing the Orbs of the Prophets, earning the site the sobriquet "The Crown of Bajor." The Inner Sanctuary, first raised more than a millennium prior to 2383, had originally comprised seven towers, since, to that point, only that many Orbs had been discovered. When the monks rebuilt after the Occupation, they chose to include two additional towers, to symbolize the later discoveries of the Orb of Destiny and the Orb of Wisdom. By 2383, the Vedek Assembly had relocated the Eighth Orb to Vanadwan.[1]
