As I read this, there is no Sun Dome Temple at the Hill of Gold. Nothing is
said about Bikhy, and even less about no temple existing in Vanch. If you
want to spread 15 Sun Dome Temples, counting the two in Prax and northern
Volsaxi Valley, and one (yet unplaced) in Lunar Tarsh, where do you want to
put the 12 others, and avoid Vanch?

And no, I don't consider the temples in Elkoi and Dykene to be Sun Dome
Temples any more than the one in the city of Pavis. They are temples to
"Yelmalio"...

Bikhy is bound to have a city temple to Yelmalio, but needn't have the
mercenary templar attachment which makes that a Sun Dome Temple.
