Map view of a Jungle Temple. The entrance to this one is at the top-left, though is sometimes at the top-right (it is always near a top corner).
Not to be confused with Jungle Shrine.

The Jungle Temple (also known as the Lihzahrd Temple) is a Hardmode post-Plantera enclosed structure constructed of Lihzahrd Bricks and located in the Underground Jungle. It is always present in any generated world, but can only be entered after Plantera has been defeated. The Jungle Temple contains unique Lihzahrd-themed enemies, traps, and furniture. The Lihzahrd Furnace, a crafting station for further Lihzahrd-themed furniture, can be found in its Chests. The Lihzahrd Altar found in the Temple's final chamber is used to summon Golem, an important late-Hardmode boss. Defeating Golem triggers the spawning of Cultists, used to summon the Lunar Events.

The Temple is entered via the Lihzahrd Door located at one of its two top corners. The door is initially locked, requiring a Temple Key to open, which is dropped by Plantera. Unlocking the door consumes one Temple Key from the player's inventory, and the door remains permanently unlocked for all players in the world. It is generally impossible to enter the Temple via any other conventional means, since Lihzahrd Bricks can only be mined with at least the Picksaw dropped by Golem, and Lihzahrd Brick Walls impose numerous restrictions, e.g. on Teleporter use. The Rod of Discord also cannot be used to teleport into the temple, nor can it be used once inside. There are, however, several methods to enter the temple prior to defeating Plantera.

The Temple's entrance leads to a long corridor that winds downward through several chambers, ending in a large room at the bottom containing the Lihzahrd Altar. The Altar can be used to summon the Golem boss at the cost of one Lihzahrd Power Cell. Several Power Cells are found in the Temple's Lihzahrd Chests, and are dropped randomly by the Temple's Lihzahrd and Flying Snake enemies.

The entire Temple is filled with several types of traps, including Flame, Spear, Spiked Ball, 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 them). As in the Dungeon, all Temple traps, pressure plates, and wires can be looted by the player for use in player-built mechanisms.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 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). They pose a very high threat to players without late-game equipment.
  • While the explosion-proof Lihzahrd Bricks and the Lihzahrd Altar can only be mined with a Picksaw, most other objects in the Temple, including traps, can be removed with low-tier tools.
    • Desktop Version In 1.4, this is no longer true. You cannot remove any traps other than the wooden spikes without a Picksaw or a better pickaxe. However, the The Grand Design can highlight wires and let you disable any traps you find. Pressure Plates are also still mineable.

Tips[edit | edit source]

For tips on entering the Temple without the Temple Key, see the Jungle Temple section of the Skipping Ahead guide.
For tips on surviving in the Jungle Temple, see Surviving in the Jungle Temple.
  • The Jungle Temple is densely wired. Collecting all wires in the Temple (using the Wire Cutter or The Grand Design) can net a player over 1000 wires.
  • An effective way of avoiding the traps in the Temple is to hold a wire-related item (Wrench, Wire Cutter, or their upgrades, or devices or triggers) to make placed wires visible, or use a Mechanical Lens. The Dangersense Potion is also useful for this, as the buff also highlights Wooden Spikes in addition to traps and pressure plates.
    • Traps that can be seen from the outside of the temple can be disarmed by removing the wires with The Grand Design even before the player is able to enter.
    • If you are overwhelmed by Lizhards, a way to disable the traps is to shoot at them with some Rocket IV / Mini Nuke II, removing the pressure plates and the spikes
  • The Lihzahrd Furnace can be sold for 20000*2 and since every chest inside the temple contains one, selling excess ones is an effective way of making money.

Music[edit | edit source]

These music tracks play while the player is in the Jungle Temple. Like most other tracks, they can be recorded with Music Boxes. Desktop Version When Otherworldly music is enabled, the track from Terraria: Otherworld will play.

# Title Condition Album Version Listen Description
26 Lihzahrd/Temple Temple Vol. 2 1.2 A mysterious and exotic-sounding theme, feeling like being in an ancient world.
69 Dungeon (Otherworldly) Dungeon, Temple n/a 1.4.0.1 It's a melancholic and ritualistic-feeling track which features chanting and tribal-like drums.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The colors of Wires in the Jungle Temple appear to be based on the horizontal position of the pressure plate they originate from.
