"When in trouble, Gungans go to sacred place."
―Jar Jar Binks[src]

The sacred place was the name of a sacred monument on Naboo built by the Elders north of the Lianorm Swamp. It was considered sacred by the Gungans, however, its exact religious or practical significance is unknown.

It was here where Boss Rugor Nass fled after the assault on Otoh Gunga by the Trade Federation in 32 BBY. Queen Padmé Amidala on her return to Naboo with her escort, was guided there by the Gungan Jar Jar Binks and formed the first alliance and peace treaty between the Gungans and the Royal House of Naboo.

There, they planned the Battle of Naboo: while the Gungans would divert the Federation forces by amassing the Gungan Grand Army on the Great Grass Plains, Amidala, together with her two Jedi escorts, would attempt to liberate the Theed Royal Palace.
