A monastery is a religious retreat, usually isolated, and normally home to monastic groups devoted to the ideals of their order. Monasteries are prevalent throughout the races of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, particularly among those races with more spiritualized societies.

The Klingon monastery at Boreth is central to the legend of Kahless the Unforgettable and his promised return. In 2369, Worf visited the monastery in an attempt to rediscover his Klingon heritage.

(TNG: "Rightful Heir") Worf visited the planet again in 2371 following the destruction of the USS Enterprise-D. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")
