The Cave of Relics was a cave on Aiur used by the Shelak Tribe during the Aeon of Strife.

Unlike many other protoss tribes, the Shelak continued to venerate the xel'naga, studying artifacts that their teachers had left behind. However, other tribes regarded the xel'naga and Shelak with hostility, attacking the relics and their guardians frequently. Attracting an excessive amount of unwanted attention, the Shelak moved the artifacts into the "Cave of Relics" in order so that they could be better protected and not attract as much attention as they did when left out in the open.
