Advanced data

The Ardougne Monastery, or Kandarin Monastery, in the kingdom of Kandarin is a building located south of Ardougne Zoo and north of the Fight Arena. It is made up of two two-story towers (east and west) joined by a single-story foyer. It is dedicated to the god Saradomin. Players can teleport here an unlimited number of times using an Ardougne cloak.

There are several coal and iron rocks that may be mined near the entrance to the monastery. A bush Farming patch is also located near the entrance.

The monastery is fairly close to a fairy ring (DJP), which can be reached by running east, as well as the Khazard Battlefield Spirit tree, which can be reached by running west, then north. The convenience of the Monastery's location makes the Ardougne Cloak arguably the best easy Achievement Diary reward.

The Ardougne Monastery is home to Brother Omad, who is the starting point for the Monk's Friend quest. He also finishes the quest, and the Ardougne Monastery houses the party at the end of it.

The Ardougne Monastery and its grounds are inhabited by several attackable monks. Unlike the monks in the Edgeville Monastery, the monks within the Ardougne Monastery do not heal players or themselves, thus are not very good for training. The area is also infested with imps, which makes it an excellent place for gathering beads, or capturing imps in magic boxes (with 71 Hunter)

The foyer contains two altars. It also contains Brother Omad who, when talked to after the quest, will start a mini-party for the player, with balloons dropped from the ceiling. Balloons can be popped by clicking on them. The Ardougne cloaks, the main reward of the Ardougne Diary, has the ability to teleport players directly to the Ardougne Monastery an unlimited number of times.

The east tower contains a spiral staircase to an upstairs room, but it does not seem to contain anything useful on either floor. The west tower's ground floor contains a stove and a lit candle spawn. A spiral staircase leads up to a small room containing two beds.

To solve a medium Treasure Trails clue, players must kill a monk in or near the Ardougne Monastery to obtain a key that opens a chest in Varrock.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the only monastery/church with more than one altar.
