Skytemple Ruins is an ancient Nordic ruin found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is just north of the College of Winterhold, situated at the top of a large glacial mound which is surrounded by water.


The ruins are guarded by 3–4 skeletons and has one altar overlooking the sea and a small enclosed burial chamber. Approaching the burial chamber will awaken a leveled boss draugr, initially encased in an upright sarcophagus, who is guarding a boss level chest.

There is little importance to this area, except as minimal training.
