Maybe Hrelar Amali is an independent focus of power and attracted the Great Tree, the Ancient Beasts and later the other gods who had temples there.

When the Seshnegi destroyed Hrelar Amali there were many different temples there, the ruins of which can still be visited in modern Ralios. I think the Dari Alliance weren't all Hsunchen.

They likely built the temples in Hrelar Amali. Because of the site's power in the area, massive conversions may have followed. Many Enerali converted to Ehilm or Orlanth because a few ones had built those temples. If they survived the great darkness keeping to their Hsunchen ways, they need a reason to convert once the darkness is finished. That's just an idea (if a bit odd maybe)

I suppose the connection stopped to exist when the Ancient Beasts (i mean the beast great spirits) were ousted from the site.

It's me. It was unimportant.
