The Lihzahrd Altar is found naturally placed in the final chamber of the Lihzahrd Temple, and is used with a Lihzahrd Power Cell to summon the Golem boss. Each summoning consumes one Power Cell from the player's inventory. The Altar can only be used in worlds where Plantera has been defeated.

Like Lihzahrd Bricks, the Altar can only be removed with a Picksaw, which is dropped randomly by Golem. Once picked up, the Altar can be placed anywhere and used to summon the Golem in any area, as long as Plantera has been defeated in the current world.


  • Right-clicking the Altar with a Power Cell in your inventory will automatically consume it. The Power Cell does not need to be held in order to click the Altar.
Bug.png Bug : When using unstacked Lihzahrd Power Cells on the altar, it will consume each slot with a power cell once.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes in multiplayer, the altar will not spawn Golem, but will say that a different enemy spawned.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes in multiplayer, the altar will not spawn in the arena causing the golem to spawn between walls.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes the altar may spawn on a Lihzahrd trap or a wooden spike. If so, the removal of the trap or spike will break the altar, allowing the player to pick it up as an item prior to obtaining the Picksaw.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes the altar may spawn above or on the path towards the main arena, making the golem spawn at a unusual spot or not spawn at all, making it almost impossible to get the golem drops such as the Picksaw.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes the altar will spawn in a wall or floor making it impossible for you to summon the Golem.
Bug.png Bug : Sometimes the altar may be broken with a Drax.


  • 1.2.3:
    • The Golem can no longer be summoned from this altar until Plantera is defeated.
    • The game will now verify there is a Lihzahrd altar at the end of world generation. This should hopefully fix the bug with there sometimes being none.
  • No longer can be mined by using the hammer on the blocks beneath it.
    • No longer mine-able with Chlorophyte gear.
    • Lihzahrd altar should now spawn and use power cells properly.
  • 1.2: Introduced.
