History

Also, many pilgrims visit the city every year to look upon the holy obelisk of Adan-Maduk, a shrine in many religions, named after Adan “The First” and the greatest god of Jagradian religion: Madruk. There are also more temples in the city, dedicated to other gods of the Jagradian pantheon, like Rahu.
