The Temple of the Lord of Light is a great red temple in Braavos dedicated to the god R'hllor, the Lord of Light.[1] It is located on an island near the junction of the Canal of Heroes with the Long Canal, and is connected to the rest of Braavos by a large bridge. Nearby is the Isle of the Gods.[2]

The temple is built from red stone. On top of its great square tower is an iron brazier twenty feet across to contain a great fire. There are also smaller fires in iron braziers near its doors.[3][4] It is smaller than the Temple of the Lord of Light in Volantis.[5]
