"Malacath, Mehrunes Dagon, Molag Bal, and Sheogorath are holy in that they serve the role of obstacles during the Testing. Sheogorath is the King of Madness. He always tests the Dunmer for mental weakness."—The House of Troubles
Statue of Sheogorath inside Zaintiraris

Zaintiraris is an unmarked Daedric ruin dedicated to Sheogorath found in the Azura's Coast region of Vvardenfell, south of Molag Mar.

Also at this location, a character called Hundilion can be overheard speaking, although he is already dead. Outside of the dungeon itself, Ferhara's Warclaws members patrol the ruin on behalf of House Redoran.

It is not marked on the map, but is one of the locations you need to visit for the Daedric Explorer achievement. Two notes can be found here, Scribbled Note, and Shrine Scavenging Journal.

The non-aggressive creatures, fiendroths, fleshflies, and shroom beetles can be found in this location.
