Nightcaller Temple is a ruin located on the clifftop overlooking Dawnstar.

Also known as the Tower of Dawn by some locals, Nightcaller Temple is a ruin within a ruin. Originally it was a military fort, but after it was abandoned it was occupied by the worshippers of Vaermina. Some time after they occupied the tower an Orc war party attacked, intending to destroy the Skull of Corruption which had inflicted them with terrible nightmares and lack of sleep. Unable to fend off the Orcs, in a last ditch effort to protect the skull, the worshippers released the Miasma, a gas that put everybody inside to sleep, and the temple fell into ruin once more.

There is a makeshift shrine of Mara created by Erandur on the left-hand wall. Two skeevers are towards the back of the room, as well as a novice-level chest. A lectern at the back of the room houses some books. You are unable to explore past this first room until you start the related quest.

Speaking to Erandur, a follower of Mara, in the Windpeak Inn in Dawnstar will begin a quest to end the nightmares, which is centered around Nightcaller Temple and its questionable past.

There is a strange, almost mechanical noise coming from the back of the temple, near to the large central wall carving. After Erandur unlocks the carving, it will reveal a passageway leading to the tower. In the middle of the tower lies the Skull of Corruption, a powerful daedric artifact which feeds on the dreams of its victims.

Two daedra hearts can be found in the alchemy lab area, both on shelves in the lower room, as well as a copy of the Alchemy skill book Mannimarco, King of Worms.
