Shrine of Two Moons
|Ruler(s)||Sunwalker Dezco (de facto)|
|Affiliation||Dawnchaser tribe, Golden Lotus|
|Location||Northeastern Vale of Eternal Blossoms|
|PvP status||Contested territory|
The Shrine of Two Moons is an ancient mogu structure located north of Mogu'shan Palace in the eastern part of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. The Golden Lotus have allowed use of the shrine by the Horde, and it serves as the main hub for the faction in the continent of Pandaria, as opposed to the sanctuary cities serving as main hubs for both factions in previous expansions. The Alliance equivalent is the Shrine of Seven Stars and is on the opposite side of Mogu'shan Palace.
The front of the building is The Golden Terrace, a large outside area separated into a lower section and an upper section. The lower section holds Pandaria faction representatives, challenge dungeon quests, and turn-in for . The upper portion notably holds the flight master, riding trainer (one of only two capable of teaching ), a vendor, and training dummies on the western side. The inside of the shrine is accessible from the upper level.
The central room of the shrine and main entrance is Hall of the Crescent Moon. Here Jinho the Wind Breaker speeds up passing players and engineers have a corner set aside for themselves. The remainder of the first floor is taken by an inn, Summer's Rest, and Chamber of Masters, where suppliers for nearly every profession are gathered.
On the upper floor, Hall of Secrets provides transmogrification, reforging, and void storage services; The Jade Vaults hold banks and guild banks; The Imperial Mercantile contains portals to all faction-friendly major cities, including Shattrath City and Dalaran.
The city should provide for most top-level character needs. The exceptions are that there is no auction house available for non-engineers (D.E.N.T. in the Hall of the Crescent Moon is an engineer-only auctioneer), and the only profession trainer is for First Aid (Ala'thinel in Chamber of Masters).

Getting to Shrine of Two Moons
The shrine is located at the northeast side of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, the top-level zone in Pandaria. Until a certain quest is completed, the main entrance to the Vale is closed to outsiders. The standard method for getting to the shrine involves completing a small quest chain to open the entrance, starting with in Kun-Lai Summit.
An alternative, back-road method involves getting on top of the wall surrounding the Vale and falling into the zone. Once in Pandaria, this can be done with relative ease via the guard tower at the southwest corner of Kun-Lai Summit.
