Shrines are sanctified objects where the humble and faithful may communicate more directly with their gods. Each blessing lasts for a duration of eight hours and cures all diseases apart from advanced Vampirism and Lycanthropy.
In the Imperial Cult, shrines take the form of altars consecrated to the Nine Divines. The faithful and respectful guests may make offerings and receive blessings at shrines. The blessings are given to the Dragonborn by praying at the Shrines. In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the Temple of the Divines in Solitude is where you can find all the Shrines to the Divines. In The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire, the Shrines to the Divines can be crafted for a Homestead with their respective Amulet of the Nine Divines.
Talos is the Hero-God of War and Governance. His worship has been currently banned by the Empire. Activating a Shrine of Talos confers the Blessing of Talos which reduces the time between shouts by 20%.
Daedric Princes (sometimes referred to as Daedra Lords) are the most powerful of the Daedra and thus most commonly worshipped as deities. There are Shrines to all the Daedra in Skyrim but only 4 that confer a blessing of which 3 are found in the Raven Rock Temple.
Boethiah is the Prince of Plots, who rules over deceit, conspiracy, secret plots of murder, assassination, treason, and unlawful overthrow of authority. Activating a Shrine of Boethiah confers the Blessing of Boethiah, which makes one-handed weapons do 10% more damage.
Nocturnal is the Daedric Prince of the Night and Darkness, and Stealth. Activating a Shrine of Nocturnal confers the Blessing of Nocturnal which makes you 10% harder to detect.
There is only one shrine belonging to the Elvish Pantheon, as most of Skyrim worships the Nine Divines.
