The Dark Crystal Wiki

The Wellspring Cloister was a cavern temple concealed within the crags of the Claw Mountains, a short distance away from the Wellspring. It had been dug over the centuries by the Dousan Clan, who would congregate there to pray to the Crystal and record their wisdom and songs on its walls.[1]

It contained a life-sized effigy of the Crystal made of translucent, faceted stone, positioned beneath a hole in the roof which allowed the Three Suns to shine upon it. It was traditional for the Cloister to be occupied by at least three worshipers at any given time, who would say their prayers out loud, which was unusual among the Dousan in other circumstances.[1]
