The apples are tempting, but don't be lured into Lilith's house of worship.
Every desire may be had behind the ancient and grotesque entrance to Lilith's temple.
Oh wise and divine Lilith, we ask that you entice us once more with the apple of temptation...for we are ready to sin!
"thousands and thousands where sacrificed that day..i could smell the stink of blood from miles"
"... Henderson had already been restrained, the man bound and confined to his tent. He was an even-tempered soul yesterday, but after what occurred during the night – the fire, and that ghost of a woman – he's been raving on and on. Charlie had to be stitched up from what Henderson had done, an awful mess... In search of some means of escaping this desolation, I took Bradley with me over the next ridge, whereupon both of us were impeded by a ghastly sight which will never be written. I can only hope when I meet the Lord on the Day of Judgement, He will forgive us for what we dared to see."

Possibly the only place in hell where you could expect to spend a well deserved weekend of fun, the Catheral of Lilith offers lust, meat and cheap pleasure to the ever growing hordes of condemned souls. No sinner should avoid visiting Mrs. Lilith’s place as soon as they get there!
Sunken for thousands of years with the rest of the continent of Atlantis, the imposing ancient Cathedral lays dormant, emanating primordial power. Any living thing that happened to pass by is somehow attracted to it, like a moth to a flame, and the longer they stay there, the more they are somehow changed.
"Surely I had reached the ends of the Earth; it was here the Cathedral of Lilith stood. I knelt and began to pray, but my prayers would fall on deaf ears...For there is no God in this place..."
"Legend has it that every thousand years, the Cathedral of Lilith rises from the depths of hell and stands or a night in the world of man. Many times have simple mortals tried to get there, craving for dark powers... but not one is known to have ever come out again."
"Deep in the most God Forsaken place of Mesopotamia stood the cathedral of Lilith from which came forth her messengers, countless birds pouring out of the mountain depths to deliver the goddess words to the many temples devoted to her cult."
(hope my english is correct...)
After being cast away, Lilith sided with evil... It is said that her spirit can be seen in the ominous clouds above her dark cathedral.
description: the cathedral was pure evil, a living entity trapping the demoness lilith from ever escaping to the outside world. Outside, you can sometimes hear her cries for freedom, and it can almost make a soul feel sorry for her.
"At the centre of that vast, sprawling and mad labyrinth grew the tree. It's tendrils penetrated far and wide spreading the oppressive sensation into every crevice of the ancient stonework. From the root heart of the tree there emanated an unhealthy glow that I had also observed out the side of my eye in some of the farthest and most inaccessible windows and although my heart was drawn to that central courtyard my head told me that to go there would be folly. I had to move swiftly onwards, there was the pressing issue of the missing children . . . "
"Astonishing, our expedition has finally reached the "Cathedral of Lilith". Legends that natives have told turned out to be true, a monolithic structure stands amongst the jungle reached beyond the sky - something that only a super natural force could accomplish. We have set up camp nearby to explore, however our native guides have gone missing last night, shortly after w... "
"In a desolate place on Earth, there is the Catedral of Lilith,
Built by her children, and in glory and honor for the first woman, the stronger of all, that was unfairly punished
This Cathedral was built on the tree where Lilith built her first home.
During some seasons of the year some special rituals are performed in the cathedral, and, if there is true faith and power in the worshipers, she appears among yellow flames and grants gifts and spells according to the necessities of her followers."
