In contrast to other places in Fodlan, Shambhala appears to be more advanced in technology consisting of neon lights along the pathways and on scriptures. Among the hallways are a series of complex piping systems used for unknown reasons as well as a doorway system that requires a device to open rather than a key. Titanus are also present around the city that act as guards.
Shambhala is an ancient kingdom that is believed to be hidden somewhere in Central Asia. The name finds a mention in both Hindu as well as Tibetan Buddhist literature. It is believed to be a place filled with happiness, peace, and tranquillity.
- Several Cyrillic scripts can be found throughout the walls of Shambhala, referencing the stronghold or the javelins of light. They are written as followed:
- Катакомбы, Russian for "catacombs".
- закрытый город, Russian for "closed/secret city".
- СВЕТИТЬСЯ СВАЯ: Russian for "light/shining piles".
