Silithus is the insect-infested part of southern Kalimdor. The area contains a part of Ahn’Qiraj, a well-known Aqiri empire. The temple of this great empire is uninhabited now, and the central big temple is sealed off by night elves. This act is attempted in order to prevent the breaking out of insect infestation. But the areas’ ruins depict the fact that they were unable to do so.
