Of all the sites on Nechani, the most sacred is a shrine managed by the Nechisti, a holy order of monks. The shrine itself is protected by a natural forcefield that can cause massive neural damage to anyone who attempts to cross it unprepared. The Nechisti protect the secret method of crossing the field, but do not easily share it. It may well be that some technological system is involved, but it has been known that some subjects have relied upon mere faith alone, and passed through to the beyond unharmed.
The Shrine of Nechani grants the people a place to worship and reflect, and engage in philosophical teachings.
