- Not to be confused with Jungle Shrine.
The Jungle Temple, otherwise known as the Lihzahrd Temple, is a Hardmode, post-Plantera structure that can be considered the Jungle's relatively small version of the Dungeon. Each generated world contains one Temple. It resembles a Mayan pyramid, though it is located in the Underground Jungle, or Caverns layer of the jungle. and has no surface entrance.
Within the Temple are Trap-filled corridors leading down to a large room containing the Lihzahrd Altar. The Altar can be used to summon the Golem boss at the cost of one Lihzahrd Power Cell. One Power Cell can be found in each of the Temple's Lihzahrd Chests, and are dropped rarely by Lihzards in the Temple.
In order to access the Temple, one must first defeat Plantera to get the Temple Key, used to open the Lihzahrd Door at the Temple's entrance or you can use an explosive to blow open the door. The Temple itself is constructed from Lihzahrd Bricks, which can be mined with the Picksaw dropped randomly by Golem or a better pickaxe. You can no longer blow up the door with explosives. However you still can rarely enter with a teleportation potion which makes speedrunning easier.
The Temple is filled with several types of Traps, including Flame Traps, Spear Traps, Spiked Ball Traps, and Super Dart Traps. Traps occur much more frequently in the Temple than in the Dungeon, and are far more damaging. They are activated by Lihzahrd Pressure Plates, which only respond to players (enemies walk on them freely without triggering traps). Like Dungeon traps, all Temple Traps, Pressure Plates, and Wires can be looted by the player for use in player-built Mechanisms.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- There is a chance that a Jungle Temple will spawn without Traps.
- Even before entering Hardmode, Lihzahrds and Flying Snakes can spawn outside the temple, if the player is standing directly in front of a Lihzahrd Brick Wall (in the temple's entrance, for example). These pose a very high threat to players without late-game equipment.
- Rarely, the Golem Spawner will spawn on spikes, enabling the player to remove the Lihzahrd Altar without a Picksaw.
- A Jungle Shrine spawned on the side of the Temple will cause a 4 block opening to get through the Temple without a key. The door will still be locked.
- It is possible for Lihzahrd Chests to spawn close enough to the door to be opened before defeating Plantera.
- If all the wires in the temple are collected, the player can easily get more than 1000 wires.
- Traps may spawn outside the temple's door, allowing them to be harvested as early as before hardmode.
- It is possible for the temple door to spawn on top of a dart trap, allowing for temple entrance pre-Plantera. This is possible in any version.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- While Lihzahrd Bricks and the Lihzahrd Altar can only be mined with a Picksaw, most other objects in the temple, including the traps, can be removed with ordinary tools.
- An effective way of avoiding the traps in the Temple is to hold a wire-related item (Wire Cutter, Wrench, Dart Traps, Pressure Plates, or any trap from inside the Temple) to make placed wires visible. The Dangersense Potion is also extremely useful, as it illuminates all traps, spikes and Pressure Plates. Bringing a Wire Cutter is extremely useful as it allows you to disable the traps before you can get tricked into them.
- Mining Lihzahrd Bricks and several Jungle Temple furniture items requires a Picksaw or better, however a Laser Drill works as well. Defeating Golem once makes this item available through Martian Madness, meaning one need not necessarily re-summon Golem multiple times in order to acquire the Picksaw for Jungle Temple mining.
- It is possible to enter the Temple without defeating Plantera, using a platform below any part of the floor that is only one block wide.
