The Temple of Courage is the third dungeon in Phantom Hourglass, situated on Molida Island. It protects a clone of Ciela, which contains some of her lost powers and memories.[1]

Entrance to the Temple

The dungeon is located north of Molida Island. The path to the dungeon is blocked by a large door within the Old Wayfarer's secret cave that can only be opened by using the Sun Key.[2] In order to gain entrance to the temple itself, Link must explore the dense northern forest and find three Tribal Head Statues to make them shine intersecting beams on the outer gate.[3]

Themes and Navigation

Link activating an Arrow Orb

The Temple of Courage consists of four floors. Thematically, the dungeon's puzzles test the courage and faith of the venturing visitor. For example, one huge room with pillars has an invisible passage over a cliff, while another room has a cliff that must be traversed using a controllable platform. The dungeon's item is the Bow and Arrows, useful to press switches and redirecting orbs. On the last floor is the boss, Crayk. Upon defeating it, Link will free the last Servant Spirit (who actually turns out to be part of Ciela) as well as earn another Heart Container and more Sand of Hours.
