The Temple of the Sun (Japanese: 太陽神殿, "Taiyō-no Shinden" / lit. "Sun Temple") is an early section of the ruins with an ancient Egyptian theme. Home to statues of Egyptian gods, Mulbruk, and a pyramid, this area contains many sandy slopes which can only be climbed using the Hermes' Boots.

Book of the Dead

  • Location: (C-3)
  • After attacking the Anubis sub-boss in the Temple of Moonlight, talk to Mulbruk to receive the Book of the Dead. Note: Depending on how many times you've spoken with Mulbruk before, you may need to talk to her more than once to receive the item.

Ankh JewelEdit

  • Location: (B-5)
  • Enter the lower part of (B-5) and stand under the Eye of Wedjet for several seconds until the chest opens. Do not place a weight on the dais or the eye will fall on you. Though it is possible to avoid taking damage from the eye, you will need to leave the area and come back to reset the puzzle. Placing a weight on the dais after unlocking the chest will re-lock it and force you to reset the puzzle as well.


Light the PlatformsEdit

  • Location: (B-2)
  • Enter the inner area of (B-1) from the left ladder at (C-1). Break the pot to the left to reveal a wedge holding up a ball. Break the wedge to cause the ball to drop into (B-2), activating the generator and revealing the invisible platforms in the room. This is required to access (A-2).

Push Little Cart!Edit

  • Location: (C-1)
  • Place a weight on the dais at (B-1) to drop a cart from the ceiling in (C-1). Push the cart from the left to make it fall to (C-2). Continue to follow and push the cart until it arrives at (D-5). There, stand with the cart on the blue platform until it descends to the middle of the room, then push it again into (D-6). This will make Ellmac's Ankh appear.

Escape the PyramidEdit

  • Location: (E-4)
  • Entering the large pyramid from either (F-4) or (D-5) will trap you inside. At (E-3), walk through the secret passage beneath the sun face and depress the floor switch at (D-3) to open the floor in (E-4), allowing you to escape.

Temple of Moonlight TeleportEdit

  • Location: (E-3)
  • Walk through the secret passage under the sun to cause it to disappear. Attack the large sun face from underneath until it tilts slightly. Move to the right side of it and continue to attack by jumping until it falls off. Do not do this from underneath or the left or you will be crushed to death.

Awakening MulbrukEdit

  • Location: (C-3)
  • Break the Origin Seal to awaken Mulbruk. If you haven't beaten any Guardians, the Seal will look broken and the door will be shut. Beat any Guardian to make the Seal appear and the door open.

Reach the Chamber of ExtinctionEdit

  • Location: (G-4)
  • Refer to Flood the Temple of the Sun to flood this area with water, allowing you to access the lower entrance to the Chamber of Extinction. A vent in the floor will spray water upward, allowing you to swim up and break the Conception Seal which will open the path up top, allowing you to access the upper entrance to the Chamber of Extinction.


  • Location: (C-1)
    • Climbing down into the chamber to collect the Map will cause the ladder to vanish, trapping you inside. Push the statue all the way to the right to make the ladder reappear.

    • Placing a weight on the dais will raise two walls, trapping you. The only way to escape is by using the Holy Grail.

While the literal translation of 太陽神殿 is 太陽 "sun" and 神殿 "temple", using online translation services such as Google will actually translate it as Qurikancha, an Incan temple dedicated to the sun god. This is most likely a coincidence.
