The Lihzahrd Altar is a placeable item that can be found inside Lihzahrd Temples in the 'boss room', and using a Lihzahrd Power Cell on it will spawn Golem. This process can be repeated by using more cells. It can be mined with a Picksaw or any Pickaxe with more than 210% Pickaxe power, and then it can be placed anywhere. However, if it generates on top of wooden spikes, the spikes can be removed with low tier pickaxes which will allow the altar to be picked up.


  • The Altar can spawn in a narrow room or hallway outside of the final chamber, causing Golem to spawn inside a wall, however, defeating him is still possible.
  • Entering the Jungle Temple prematurely and acquiring access to the Altar will not allow the player to spawn Golem if Plantera hasn't been defeated for at least once in this world.
  • Right-Clicking the altar will automatically consume any Lihzahrd Power Cells inside the player's inventory. The Powers Cells are not required to be held by the player in order to use them.
  • It is possible to acquire the Altar without use of a Picksaw by activating Actuators on the blocks the Altar is placed on. However, this method is unusable unless you beat Golem in the world at least once. (In Mobile and 3DS versions of the game, it has been reported that using this method will corrupt the world's save file, rendering it inaccessible afterwards, it is advised to only use this method on worlds that aren't meant to be kept.)
