The Pillars of Zanash are a shrine to Saradomin found in the vicinity of East Ardougne and Witchaven. The pillars, known to be made of marble,[1] are mentioned by name only in the Tourist's Guide to Ardougne, found in the real-estate agency within the city, though it incorrectly states they are found west of Ardougne.

According to Brother Maledict, the shrine is over 150 years old, and predates the founding of Witchaven.[2] When the village came into being, the shrine was abandoned and has fallen into disrepair.[3] In addition, Mayor Hobb (while possessed by sea slugs) says that the shrine is "ancient beyond knowledge" and that its history should not be overlooked.[4]
