Ahn'Qiraj: The Fallen Kingdom is a zone in southwestern Kalimdor, beyond of the Scarab Wall of Silithus. Once the mighty kingdom of Ahn'Qiraj, this zone includes the majority of the Ahn'Qiraj lobby, all of the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj, and the above-ground area of the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj. In addition, there is an area in the corner south and west of Ossirian and Ayamiss, respectively, that has some towers, broken walls, and an inert obsidian statue (like at the entrance to the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj) that is included in the zone's map area.
There is an invisible wall just past Skeram's room preventing entry to the Temple itself. The zone is only a remnant of its former self, with no NPCs or interactive objects.

Ahn'Qiraj is the city-kingdom of the Qiraji, found in the southern part of Silithus. It was originally a titan research station led by the tol'vir which housed the old god C'Thun before being commandeered by the Aqir, who would become the Qiraji led by the Twin Emperors—Vek'nilash and Vek'lor. Following the War of the Shifting Sands, the kingdom was contained from the rest of the world by the Scarab Wall, until it was opened again recently.
After the Ahn'Qiraj War, the ogre mage Cho'gall took shelter inside the ruined city to sacrifice Med'an and use his potent magical power to resurrect C'Thun. However, Med'an defeated Cho'gall, burying him beneath the rubble of Ahn'Qiraj. During the Elemental Unrest, it was revealed that some Qiraji still resided in Ahn'Qiraj, and some even worshiped Cho'gall.
