The historical and spiritual significance of Jedha led the moon to become a world of worship for those who believed in the Force, and a holy site for pilgrims who sought spiritual guidance. However, after the fall of the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic, the Galactic Empire occupied the moon to control its Kyber crystal resources that were once used by the Jedi to build Lightsabers.
- Jedha city: An ancient walled city located on Jedha. Located in the city was the ancient Temple of the Whills, held sacred by those who followed the teachings of the Church of the Force. For some time, the Empire occupied the city, an action that was met with firm resistance by Saw Gerrera's Partisans. Jedha City was destroyed by a superlaser blast from the newly-operational Death Star.
