Map of the main floor of the Temple if the Ancients

As you enter the Temple of the Ancients, Admiral Varko approaches Darth Malak on the viewing platform of the Star Forge:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Admiral Varko: Lord Malak, the preparations are nearly complete. Every day the Star Forge adds more ships to our fleet, it is operating at nearly 300% of our projections. The fleet is assembling around the Star Forge, and awaits your instructions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Darth Malak: Patience, Commander. My new apprentice is nearly ready. Once Bastila joins her Battle Meditation to our enormous fleet, we shall be invincible. Then we shall begin our final conquest of the Core Worlds, and the Republic will be crushed forever.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Admiral Varko: As you wish, Lord Malak.

Trapped on a Nameless World[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Trapped on a Nameless World
Despite the wishes of the Rakata, Jolee and Juhani have come with you into the ancient Rakata temple. Together you should be able to find a way to disable the disruptor field and get off this planet.

The Temple entrance is in the middle of the west side of the main floor, with a Massive Door on the opposite side of the corridor in the east wall. If you try to use either one at this point:

[This door is sealed and there is no visible means of unlocking it.]

You need to unlock the massive door by going through the corresponding door on the east side of the main floor, which is accessible by a corridor around the entire perimeter of the Temple, and down into the Catacombs to use the Ancient Computer.

If you simply want to get there as quickly and with as little incident as possible, use the North Corridor for both the inward and outward journeys; otherwise, using the South Corridor as well and exploring the main floor allows you to gain more experience and retrieve more items.

South Security Computer[edit]

Follow the corridor as it winds to the south of the Temple entrance: just before you reach the west end of the South Corridor, there's a locked temple door in the east wall of the northeast corner:

Security Temple Door Unlock 35 (15) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 20

Within are a Sith acolyte and a metal box in the southwest corner:

There's also a computer in the southeast corner:

  • 20 * level Overloaded computer power conduit in North Security Computer Room
  • 20 * level Overloaded computer power conduit in South Security Computer Room
  • 15 * level Unlocked armory security door

As ever, viewing camera feeds allows you to scout without wasting Computer Spikes downloading an area schematic. The computer in the north security computer room is identical to this one, so feel free to overload its computer power conduit. However, do not overload this computer's power conduit until you've done everything you want to do and made sure at least one party member is either at a safe distance in Solo mode or using an Electrical Capacitance Shield so that none of the 1000 electrical damage is inflicted.

None of the uses for which no experience is received are really worthwhile: at this point you should have no problem killing the droids and sentry turrets without needing to corrupt their targetting programs or deactivate them (and at the very least, Jolee should have Disable Droid even if you or Juhani do not).

South Corridor[edit]

The south corridor has a sea view through the pillars all along its south wall, and it's patrolled by two droids using Blaster Rifles:

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

Through an open doorway in the north wall is a room containing a melee Sith assault droid and a Sith acolyte, while beyond the temple door adjacent to the east is another room containing another Sith acolyte, and four footlockers by the north wall and another by the west wall in the southwest corner, all with random contents.

There's a locked temple door in the west wall:

Beyond the locked temple doors is the prototype droid command room, with a computer by its north wall:

As ever, viewing camera feeds allows you to scout without wasting Computer Spikes downloading an area schematic. Do not overload this computer's power conduit until you've done everything you want to do and made sure at least one party member is either at a safe distance in Solo mode or using an Electrical Capacitance Shield so that none of the 1000 electrical damage is inflicted.

Only one of the uses for which no experience is received may be worthwhile: disabling prototype droid shields while viewing the East Guard Post is advisable if your party uses energy weapons, since these shields can absorb up to 400 points of energy damage. Otherwise, at this point you should have no problem killing the droids and sentry turrets without needing to corrupt their targetting programs or deactivate them (and at the very least, Jolee should have Disable Droid even if you or Juhani do not).

Beyond the temple door in the west wall is the obelisk corridor, which contains two more pairs of heavy defense turrets:

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

You should recognize the alcove to the north at its west end as the place where Darth Malak was torturing Bastila...

East Guard Post[edit]

Midway along the west wall of the corridor along the east perimeter of the main floor is a temple door, beyond which is a room containing two prototype droids, and a strong box by the south wall in its southwest corner:

Catacombs[edit]

Beyond the temple door in the west wall of the northwest corner of the east guard post is a ramp down to another temple door to the west, beyond which are the Temple Catacombs, where using the Ancient Computer unlocks the Massive Door opposite the Temple entrance on the west side of the main floor, allowing you to reach the Summit.

North Corridor[edit]

The north corridor has a sea view through the pillars all along its north wall, and it's patrolled by two droids using Blaster Rifles.

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

At the west end of the corridor is a temple door in the east wall of the southeast corner to the south, beyond which is a room containing a Sith acolyte with a metal box by the north wall and a footlocker by the south wall, both with random contents (although the metal box may be difficult or even impossible to open for some reason).

KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:

There are three temple doors in the south wall of the north corridor. Beyond the west door is a room containing another Sith assault droid, a Sith acolyte and a footlocker with random contents between the beds by the east wall, while beyond the center door is a room containing a Sith assault droid and a Sith acolyte. The east door is locked:

Beyond it is the north security computer room, which contains a Sith acolyte, a footlocker with random contents by the east wall in the southeast corner and a computer identical to the South Security Computer.

Beyond the temple door in the south wall of the center room are two dark Jedi guarding the Armory to the west. At the east end of the corridor is a temple door in the west wall of the southwest corner to the south, beyond which is a room containing a rusted droid:

The droid is actively engaged in its patrol route. You cannot reprogram it anymore.

The droid only patrols back and forth between here and the East Guard Post to the south, where it can distract the two prototype droids. However, it's only really worth repairing to receive experience for doing so.

There's a locked metal box in the southwest corner and two metal boxes by the west wall, another with random contents by the north wall and another locked metal box in the northeast corner:

The corridor beyond the temple door in the west wall of the northwest corner leads to another temple door at its west end, beyond which are the two dark Jedi guarding the Armory to the west.

Armory[edit]

Beyond the temple doors of the center room to the south of the North Corridor or those to the south and west of the rusted droid in the northeast corner of the main floor is a room containing a male dark Jedi Guardian and a female dark Jedi Sentinel, who challenges you once you cross the threshold:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dark Jedi: Who dares intrude on our meditations? You know the penalty for... Revan - you are back!

2. Yes, the true Sith Lord has returned! Now bow before me!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dark Jedi: We have sworn allegiance to Malak. He has led the Sith to conquest and victory. Your time is over, Revan!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dark Jedi: Malak told us what happened to you. The Jedi Council has stripped you of your power. You are a shell of what you once were! You are not fit to rule the Sith anymore, Revan. Darth Malak will reward us greatly for destroying you!

However, the female uses Master Valor unless debilitated, and since she has Force Immunity: Fear, Stun and Paralysis this is only possible using Force Whirlwind or Wound, Choke or Kill (although two failed saves against Kill will always result in her death). After using Master Valor:

Beyond the temple door in the west wall of the southwest corner is the southeast corner of a room in which a Sith Master destroys a training droid after you open the door:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Master: Revan! Lord Malak told us you still lived. At last - a challenge worthy of my skills. I grow so bored with slaughtering these mindless training droids. I intensified my training ten fold in the hopes I would get the chance to face you in mortal combat! I am glad to see my training has not been in vain.

Even if his Force Immunity is canceled by Force Breach or it expires, his high natural Force resistance means that even a level 20 Jedi's Force powers will only breach it 45% of the time, which combined with Force Immunity: Fear, Stun and Paralysis makes it (highly) unlikely that he'll be debilitated even with Force Whirlwind or Wound, Choke or Kill. A Force user like Jolee should use (Advanced) Throw Lightsaber against him, if possible (preferably after using an Adhesive Grenade to entangle him).

Experience can be received by using the South Security Computer, or its equivalent in the north security computer room beyond the locked temple door in the south wall at the east end of the North Corridor, to unlock it.

There's a metal box by the south wall in the southeast corner, and a Workbench by the west wall in the southwest corner:

Massive Door[edit]

Once you've entered the Catacombs and used the Ancient Computer there to open the massive door on the west side of the main floor opposite the Temple entrance, then you can return to it to do so.

West Guard Post[edit]

Beyond the massive door is the west guard post, containing two melee Sith sentry droids.

Summit[edit]

Beyond the temple door in the east wall of the southeast corner of the west guard post is a ramp up to another temple door to the east, beyond which is the Temple Summit.

Temple Exit[edit]

Once you've used the Ancient Computer on the summit to shut down the planetary disruptor field and the Temple energy shield, then you can return to the main floor to exit the Temple to the west.
