The Basilica was a large, multi-purpose institution located off the Western Sea on Coruscant. Not only did it serve as an historical library and a place of learning for gifted orphans, but it also served for some time as a headquarters for Luke Skywalker's Jedi Order.
Its gothic design brought an ancient air to reflect the memory and legacy of the Old Jedi Order. The expansive grounds provided space for the orphans' recreation, and also provided a haven for Jedi training and meditation. Inside, the Basilica housed an impressive collection of artifacts, books, and data records. Its crypts had been converted into a dormitory for the Jedi, and a landing pad had been built along one of its many gothic rooftops.
