The Rain Shrine (雨のほこら, Ame no Hokora) is a shrine located to the west of the village of Kol in Alefgard during the time of the original Dragon Quest. It is preceded by the Tower of Rubiss in Dragon Quest III.
At some time between the events of Dragon Quest III (which chronologically came first) and Dragon Quest, the tower west of Kol was converted into the shrine. No details are ever provided regarding this conversion.
The shrine is home to a man guarding the Staff of Rain. By bringing the Lyre of Ire to the man, the hero may exchange it for the staff. In the original Famicom artwork, it is depicted as run-down and in ruins.
Dragon Quest II
As is the case of many Alefgard locations, the shrine does not appear on the world map in Dragon Quest II.
