About this mod

An update of the somewhat boring exterior of Sky Haven Temple; transforming it into a lovely Japanese (Akaviri) inspired garden.

Oldrim version done!

Quite a simple mod that simply transforms the exterior of Sky Haven Temple into a more aesthetically pleasing Japanese (of in this case Akaviri) themed garden, providing a nice pond, waterfall, Canitcle trees, lookout posts, and guardhouse. 

In terms of the lore, some people might complain about the use of Canticle Trees, but as far as I'm aware there are many Ancestor Glades across Tamriel other than the one Ancient Grove in Skyrim. I incorporated the Ancestor Moths that are supposedly drawn to the trees, as well as some easter eggs of ancient Nord ruins with the Moth mural on them to show the area was used long before the Blades arrived as well.

NOTE!!: Some of the clutter and lights shown in the screen shots won't spawn until you progress the blades questline


- Probably incompatible with any others mods that edit the exterior of Sky Haven Temple

- Compatible with JKs Sky Haven Forge, with provided patch.

- Probably compatible with any mods that don't

- Will add anymore that are reported


- Screen shots! I could definitely use some better screenshots as that is not my forte 

- Recommendations. Specifically on stuff that can make the area more useful. I was thinking of adding forges and whatnot but thought that they would be better served for an update to the interior of Sky Haven Temple.

- Bug fixes/ advise. This is my first released mod so any advise on mistakes I might have made are greatly appreciated (assuming you know what you're talking about haha).

Mod Recommendations:

- I highly recommend using one of the training dummies provide XP mods so that you can train in the courtyard yourself (note that the dummies only spawn after a bit into the Blades quest line)

Jk's Skyhaven Forge, I was planning at some point to add a forge and such not put jkrojmal went ahead and made one 10000X better than I ever could so download it!! (also download the provided patch)

- JK's Skyrim, esp replacer available in the in the optional file section. Big thanks to Teabag86 for making this!


- V1.2: Forgot to clean the update file, grrr
- V1.1: Updated some of the clutter and lights to spawn with the vanilla clutter once you progress a little further into the blades questline
- V1.0: Initial release
