Ever felt like you were never really revarded for defeating Alduin and saving the entire world? ...And have you always wanted a massive
player home that was both highly detailed and well integrated in to the lore? Well, then this is the mod for you.
Located in Sovngarde, the Halls of Dovahndor is the ultimate home for the ultimate Dragonborn.
This mod has literally hours of exploration for those who want to delve into the details and uncover every secret. There are hidden locations,
secret paths, and the Underdepths, a massive hideout for your stealthy character.
The mod also features a unique spell, allowing you to teleport to the Halls of Dovahndor from anywhere, along with several other unique items.
(Currently, this mod does NOT require that you defeat Alduin. Therefor I recommend that you download this mod after you have done so)
For centuries the ruins of mysterios gate stood dorment on the peak of the Throat of the World. Few know about it's existence and even fewer has seen it. No one really knows its origins, but there are several theories. Some say it was built by an ancient civilazation in an atempt to contact the gods, while others say it was builts by the gods themselves.
Millenia ago the dragons named the gate Monahven Miraad, or the Gate of Mother Wind in the dragon tongue. This name was later adapted by the Greybeards, who made their sancturay on the mountain centuries ago.
With the defeat of Alduin the World Eater, a portal opened. Since then both greybeards and dragons have tried to enter the gate, but none has succeded. Now the Graybeards believe that only one can enter the portal, the hero that defeated Alduin... Dragonborn!

The Underdepths is a massive hidden hideout located underneath Dovahndor itself. This is also the location of the Hall of Shadows, the secret lair for your stealthy character. There are several entrances to the Underdepths, but they are all hidden, so keep your eyes open. (One of these secret entrances can only be unlocked from the other side.)
The mod features all crafting stations in the game. There are primary crafting stations like Forges and Alchemy Tables, but also Wood Chopping Blocks and Cooking Pots. Threre are also tons of crafting material and storage.
Shrines of the Gods:
Shrines of all Nine Gods can be found in Dovahndor. But there's a catch, they're all hidden at different locations. Some Shrines, like Zenithar's Forge and the Tree of Kynareth might be easy find. But others, like Stendarr's Peak and the Altar of Arkay, might prove a challange. Can you find all nine shrines?

Along with the teleportation spell-tome, there are sevral new unique items scattered all across Dovahndor.

The Halls of Dovahndor are also often reffered to as the Seven Great Halls, or simply the Seven Halls.
Also known as the Museum, the centrepiece of this hall is a full size copy of the Snow Elf statue of Irkngthand, the only known representation of a Snow Elf.
In the basement you can find the terrifying Chamber of Monsters, a collection of some of Skyrims most dangerous and horrifying creatures.
Often called the Throne Room, or simply the Seventh Hall, the centrepiece of this great hall is the Golden Throne of the Dragonborn, and standing above, a full-size representation of Alduin himself.
In addition to the Seven Halls, legends speak of an illusive Eighth Hall, shrouded in secrecy. This hall is said to be located deep within the Underdepths, and reffered to only as the Hall of Shadows.
