Yelmalio in Nochet

Presume nothing on this score.  It is probably an offshoot of the Sun Valley temple, acting as a local temple and embassy for Sartar's Sun Domers. 

Here are some of the entries from my Nochet text for those bloodlines associated with the Nochet Sun Dome temple:

Little Vanntar: For long the temple of Yelmalio was banished from Nochet and Esrolia, yet Green Ernalda called him back and, garbed in the Robes of Loyalty, he returned.  House Pelgraeos granted Yelmalio a small corner of Pella’s Garden and this has become known to all nearby as Little Vanntar based on the origin of most of its inhabitants.

K9.  House of the High Sun.  The bloodline responsible for the Sun Dome Temple lives here in this squat stone court.

K10.  Long Hall.  The bloodline of Montar Blazingeyes resides here.  They are known for their strict adherence to the vows and geases of Yelmalio.

K12.  The Footstool Inn.  Innkeeper Dorasa Sharptongue says the name comes from the golden brick her ancestor took from the Footstool of Yelm in the wars with Dara Happa.  No one who stays there believes her, but it’s a busy inn with much traffic from the Great Market.

K14.  Temple of Green Ernalda.  Here the women of Little Vanntar celebrate Ernalda.

K15.  The Sun Dome Temple.  This is not like the glorious Sun Domes of Sartar or Saird, but a rather poor bee-hive like building of stone blocks painted yellow-gold on top.  (For possible appearance, see: http://aphs.worldnomads.com/rachel_and_daniel/16402/P2080185.jpg )  Despite its inglorious appearance, the local warriors are keen fighters though they use substantially shorter spears to maneuver through the streets of Nochet than their northern brethren. 

K16.  Gold Finch Hall.  The chieftain of the Gold Finch clan lives here and keeps order and truth prevalent throughout Little Vanntar.  The chieftain and his family always are charged by Yelmalio to never eat the meat of birds, and the little gold finches that live in the district keep the chief alert to danger and threats.

K37.  Hall Pelgraeos.  This clan is magically strong and traditionally serves the shrines of both Pella and the Three Flames.  The Orendar [i.e. chieftainess] of the hall rules over Little Vanntar, but has granted the privileges of the Earth and Sun to the local Yelmalions.

Love this most of all.
