They can be found rarely in Jungle Biomes, often close to Water.

Jungle Temples consist of three levels on the inside. The upper level is empty, and from the main hall there is a Stairway leading down to the basement.

In the basement, there is 3 Levers on the Player's left controlling the trap. The trap itself is on the right and consists of 2 Dispensers filled with some Arrows connected to Tripwire Hooks. Behind the trap there are 2 Chests with some loot available. The first Tripwire is in the beginning of the hallway; while the second Tripwire is in front of the Chest.

There are two main methods to solve the puzzle of the temple:

  • Method 1: Flick levers – To solve the puzzle, the Player must flick the Lever closest to the stairs, then flick the Lever farthest away from the staircase, then flick the Lever closest to the stairs off, and then flick the Lever farthest from the stair off. The middle Lever is useless as it does not power anything. A piston Trapdoor will have been opened above the wall and the Player may go inside to retrieve the Items inside the Chest. Notice that there will be no way out if the Player can't mine or Block jump their way out.
  • Method 2: Break it – An easier way to solve the puzzle is to break the entire wall that holds the levers.
