The Temple is the fourth and final main area of the caves, starting on level 13. Olmec's Lair is found at the end, on level 16.


The area consists of narrow passageways through bricked terrain, and the level may also contain trees or grassy terrain in limited areas. Treasure  may be found in the walls if the walls are destroyed with either Bombs or a Mattock. One of the levels will randomly contain the door to the City of Gold, which can only be opened with a Scepter while wearing the Hedjet.


All Monsters and Traps (besides The Ghost) that can be harmful/hostile in the Temple:

  • Olmec has his own unique boss level only and always found on level 16.

Special FeaturesEdit

Kali's AltarsEdit

Kali's Altars can appear on certain levels of every area. You can sacrifice dead or knocked out creatures by dropping them onto the Altar. Depending on your sacrifice, she will gift you or not with items. If you destroy the Altar, she will be displeased with you and spawn a group of spiders on you, even if the destruction was by another creature.

Golden IdolEdit

Golden Idols may appear randomly on each of the levels.  They are placed beneath a Ceiling Trap which will trap the Spelunker in the room with sliding doors as soon as he grabs the Idol. The Ceiling will slowly descend until they reach the floor, and are guaranteed to crush the Spelunker if he does not escape through the use of a Bomb or Mattock to break out of the sealed room.
