  • Map view of a Jungle Temple. The entrance to this one is at the top-left, but it can also appear at the top-right. The door requires a Temple Key, which is consumed on use.

    The Jungle Temple, also known as the Lihzahrd Temple, is a big structure that is located in the Underground Jungle, with no surface entrance. It can only be accessed after defeating Plantera in the hardmode Underground Jungle, and exploring it is mandatory to progress to the Lunar Events.

    The place is usually explored to obtain the materials needed for Solar TabletSolar Tablets, and to obtain the drops from the boss of the area, the Golem. Even with post-Plantera gear, surviving in the place can be challenging, due to the very strong enemies and the considerably high amount of traps.

    There are two main enemies in the Jungle Temple:

    • LihzahrdLihzahrds have two forms: they'll first walk on two legs, and then when they get to half Health, they'll become quadrupeds, becoming much faster and immune to knockback. Lihzahrds do about 40 (80) damage in their first form, and about 60 (120) in their second.
    • Flying SnakeFlying Snakes possess the ability to fly and do considerably higher damage, however they are significantly more vulnerable to knockback and have less health.

    The enemies are not the only threat found, the Jungle Temple is notorious for its large amount of Traps, such as:

    • Super Dart TrapSuper Dart Traps, which will launch high-speed poisonous darts;
    • Flame TrapFlame Traps, which will deal very large amounts of damage with a short range;
    • Spiky Ball TrapSpiky Ball Traps, which drops spiky balls that bounce and linger around for a long time;
    • Spear TrapSpear Traps, that jab you from above with high-speed spears;
    • Wooden SpikeWooden Spikes, which will deal damage to you when touched.

    One should move slowly and carefully, and pay attention to the floor. If you can't seem to spot pressure plates very well, you can stick to traversing across the ceiling or you can hold Wire CutterWire Cutter to enable you to see the wires leading to some of the traps. Cutting them will disable the traps and allow you to pass safely. Additionally, traps can also be mined with a Pickaxe. Explosives can also be used to easily remove Wooden Spikes.

    At the end of the Temple lies a wide, expansive area where a single Lihzahrd AltarLihzahrd Altar can be found. The Lihzahrd Power CellLihzahrd Power Cells found in chests and dropped by local enemies can be used to activate it and summon the boss of the area, the Golem.
