頂く in this case likely means something like "is crowned by" or "is adorned by". I've seen it used in contexts like 雪を頂く, meaning "snow-capped", and I'm pretty sure this is how it's being used here.

Here's another possible rendering:

"Gumbious Temple, in which you now stand, is graced by the holy flame of the Eclipse Torch. It is the center of not only the Dezolian faith, but also its government."

頂く basically means "be privileged to have or receive". In religious terms, one might say "graced by the presence of". I shortened it to "graced by" to reduce the number of "of"s in the sentence. :-)
