Takshila is the Holy Island in the center of Lemuria. The center is presided over by a large extinct volcano with the top blown off.
The Temple of Takshila has an ever flowing fountain that feeds all the waterways on Lemuria. The fountain has a built-in safety feature that controls the water level; only enough is released to keep the levels to capacity but not over or under. The Guardians survey quarterly to account for water needs.
Takshila is populated by winged Naga (crests, rattles and spit poison) and seacats. They are only some of the Guardians of the Holy Lake.
The population is constantly changing, as the acolytes and students finish their studies, they either go home or are sent on missions for the Temple. Some come to visit their extensive Library.
