Ara'rya is an ancient monastery built in the Demon Spawn War. Like other such places dotting Kul-Cir's deep groves, it was known for training Covenant monks, mentalists, and martial artists. The building of this place was done by Covenant forces serving under Ptah.
In 1545 HE, githzerai refugees of the Incarsabec Rebellion, found their way to the world Bal-Kriav. Said to have been guided by their god Ptah, they headed for Kul-Cir, re-occupying his ancient monasteries. Numbering close to 300, they struggled for a long time. By the end of the Horgon Era, they had Ara'rya and the other important monasteries cleared and habitable.
In 1329, Athenas Lanterns, a holy order of knights and priests out of Holy Sanctum, attacked a nest of witches holed up in the ruin. When the crusaders began to batter the ancient monastery walls, a conclave of Theegan witches released a demon. They gambled that it would help them defeat holy inquisitors giving no quarter to those consorting with demons. This demon, Dvr'jiss Jagg, did not stick around to help. Ara'rya was sacked, the witches were rounded up and consumed by holy fire.
