Assarnatamat is a shrine to Mehrunes Dagon on the Foyada Mamaea southeast of Caldera.

The shrine to Mehrunes Dagon within Assarnatamat

The shrine is located northeast of Balmora, just inside the Ashlands region. It is home to a couple of tough Daedra worshippers, including Thovasi Alen, who wears the Shoes of Sanguine Stalking needed for a Morag Tong quest. The outside is guarded by several leveled daedra. The ebony on the altar is cursed.

  • Assarnatamat is literally the Center of the Game World, at coordinates [0,0]. One curious side-effect of this shrine's central location is that occasionally, if you use a Command spell to lure a person or creature into a different location than they start in, and then leave them there unattended for too long, they will occasionally disappear and later be found wandering around this shrine.
  • On certain unpatched versions of the game, if you drop an item while underwater, the item will also respawn at this location.
