The Hall of the Dead is both Falkreath's only temple and home for both Runil, the priest of Arkay and Kust, who is responsible for looking after Falkreath's cemetery.
The living quarters are at the northern end of the house, while the southern end is given over for a shrine and for devotions. It is found at the far western end of Falkreath with cemeteries all around.
There is a shrine of Arkay on either side of the front porch entrance, as well as two tall posts with banners of Arkay hanging from them. Falkreath has been the site of many battles, helping to feed its massive cemetery. Many of the Nords see it as a grand honor to be buried there amongst the ancestors and heros. The first time you visit Falkreath, as you approach the Hall, you will witness a funeral taking place for the daughter of Mathies and his wife Indara Caerellia. Asking about will reveal their daughter was brutally murdered. Runil, as the priest to Arkay, will be performing the service, while Sinding, the culprit is in Falkreath jail. Visiting and speaking to Sinding gives you the option to initiate the related quest. There are several nightshade plants and fungi growing among the gravestones around the hall.
