 - You’ll see the same monkey that stole your lantern. She is locked in a wooden cage. Strike the cage a few times with your sword to break it open. The monkey will climb up the ivy and signal for you to follow her upwards.

 - Turn and look at the wall on the left side of the room and you’ll see a few walltulas. Shoot them down with your slingshot and then climb to the top of the ivy. Now climb over to your right and you’ll see a treasure chest. Open it up to get a yellow rupee.

 - Jump down and walk over to the north end of the room. Pull out the slingshot and shoot down a few more walltulas. Climb up the ivy and the monkey will then run over to the door and call you over. Walk up and open the door.

 - With the monkey following right behind, walk down the steps and up another series of steps. You’ll encounter a skulltula crawling around. The skulltula will block your attacks from the front. Wait for it to attack and quickly sidestep. The skulltula is vulnerable from its side. Just keep slashing away until it has been defeated.

 - At the top of the platform you will see four torches. Use your lantern to light up all four of them which causes a platform to rise from the ground.

 - You'll notice that that raised staircase blocks a weird looking wall. Don't worry about this as we will get to this wall later on. Follow the monkey across the platform and you’ll see a treasure chest on your left. Open it up to get the dungeon map. Go through the door which the monkey is standing by.

 - This massive center area of the temple is actually outdoors. A short cut-scene plays with the monkey trying to cross the bridge. A large baboon appears on the other side of the bridge, holding a gigantic boomerang. The baboon goes by the name Ook. Ook throws the boomerang and cuts the bridge in half, causing your monkey friend to retreat back towards you. Ook than slaps his butt and runs off. Midna jumps into the conversation with some more hilarious commentary. Lead your monkey friend back to the previous room.

 - Now head down the path to the other side of this room and burn down the spiderweb. Defeat the deku baba that you find around the corner. Follow your monkey friend as she jumps from platform to platform. There is a spider hanging from the ceiling and it will scare the monkey. This creature is known as a pygmy skulltula. Just use the slingshot to knock it down and then jump across the platform. The monkey leads you to a locked door, how nice of him. Backtrack and enter through the door at the north side of this room.

 - You are back outside once again but this time in a different area. The monkey won’t follow you to this room and will remain in the previous room. Since you are outside, the wind will blow and it will turn the platform around, occasionally allowing Link to run across. There are a few keese here but nothing Link can’t handle. Run across and enter the door at the end of the path to get to the other side of the temple.

 - There isn’t much to do in this room right now but luckily there is a treasure chest just to the right of the door once you walk in. Open the chest to get a small key. Turn around and head back outside. Run across the outdoor area and return to the south part of the temple. Re-unite with the monkey and run over to the locked door. Use the small key and go through to the next room.

 - There is another caged monkey in this room and the first monkey will run up to the other one trying to break him out of its cage. It is actually quite humorous yet sad watching the monkey struggle to free her friend.

She tries to roll into the center pillar that is under his monkey friend but she just hurts herself. Learn from the idiotic monkey and roll into the pillar three times and the cage will drop to the floor, breaking the bars and freeing the second monkey. Two bokoblin’s will jump down and attack you but they should be no problem for you. Simple sword slashes will take care of them.

 - Under the platform by the bridge there is actually a small treasure chest containing 10 rupees. Walk on over to the monkeys and then follow them up the path. They’ll both hang on the ropes allowing Link to swing across the large gap above the broken bridge. Jump from monkey to monkey and then to the platform. Open the door and head back to the previous room.

 - Your monkey friends won’t follow you into this room because it is filled with enemies. There are two deku babas in this room but these ones are a bit different. They are known as baba serpents. Once you slash at them a few times their head will seperate from their stems. Finish the head off with a few sword slahes. There is another strange creature known as a deku like that is blocking the path on the south side of the room. Don’t mind it for now and just start heading up the steps.

 - You’ll see another deku like straight ahead but don’t mind it and keep escalating up the steps. There is a bombling near the top of the steps. Z-target him and wait until it jumps towards your shield or just slash at it with your sword. Lift up the bomb that is formed and quickly make a right turn. Run straight ahead until you are just over the gap where the deku like lies below. Z-target the creature and toss the bomb into its mouth, defeating the ugly looking thing.

 - Near where you lit the four torches, there is some ivy at the north side of the room. Climb up the ivy and move to your left. You’ll reach a treasure chest containing a red rupee. Walk across the tiled bridge once again and then return to the previous room.

 - Turn to your left and you’ll some ivy on the wall. Defeat the walltulas that are hanging on wall by using the slingshot. Jump on over and climb up the ivy. Enter the door that is straight ahead.

 - Another monkey is being held prisoner here behind a locked door. The small key is immediately snatched up by a big baba in the middle of the room. The enemy is not nearly as tough as it looks. Just z-target it and let it attack Link. Since you are locked on, your shield will block the attack. Just keep z-targeting and use the jump attack to strike the big baba.

 - Once defeated a spider will jump off of Ook’s back and then the baboon will leave through the top of the room. Left behind is the dungeon weapon that Link receives, the gale boomerang. He’ll automatically walk over to it and hear that the Fairy of Winds resides within the boomerang.

 - There isn’t much else to do here so return towards the door, only to see it locked. You’ll notice just above the door there is a spinning panel. Use the gale boomerang and lock onto the spinning panel. Press it five times and then release the boomerang and it will lift the gate from the door. Enter it to get back outside.

Cross the bridge and then use the gale boomerang on the torches that you lit up earlier. All of them will go out and it will lower the four platforms that are straight ahead.

Toss the boomerang and in one swipe hit all four panels and the gat straight ahead will open up. Walk forward and open the chest to get the big key. This will allow Link to gain access to the dungeon’s boss room.

 - You can jump down into the water that is in the far southwest corner of the room. Swim through the small passage within the wall and it leads to a treasure chest containing a yellow rupee. Next, just continue through the door that is on the north side of this room to get back outside.

4.7 Find all the Monkeys
 - Wait for the platform to be spun around by the wind and then cross it. One of the monkeys that we saved earlier is waiting for you here. Continue straight ahead and go through the door.

 - Now that we have the gale boomerang we can spin the platform in the center of this room. Do so and then run across and enter through the door on the north side of the room. You’ll see the four monkeys you have already saved and then the fifth jumps over and joins them. There are still three more monkeys to save so head over and walk on the spinning platform to the right. Once you are standing on it, use the gale boomerang to spin it. Walk over to the next one that is right next to it and spin this one as well. This will give you access to the east side of the room.

Lock onto the bombling and toss the gale boomerang. It will pull a bomb over to Link so take it and throw it into the mouth of the deku like. Once it has blown up jump across to the treasure chest and open it for a small key.

 - Now head to the north side of the room and you’ll see a boulder at the top of the set of vines. You can’t climb the vine or toss a bomb from the bombling high enough, so what do you do? What Link needs to do is pull out the gale boomerang, target the bombling, and then target the boulder and release. The boomerang will take the bomb and with it, explode the boulder.

Once all enemies are defeated use the gale boomerang at the spider bomb once again and then run on over and toss it at the boulder in this room. It will explode the boulder and the monkey will come running out. There is nothing else to do in this room so head back to left side of the room and head through the door.

 - You’ll notice that the sixth monkey you just saved has joined up with his other monkey friends. Jump down to the lower level and use the gale boomerang on the spinning platforms and make your way through the door at the south end of the room.

 - Spin the center platform using the gale boomerang and then walk on it. Then spin it once again so it is stretching from left to right. Defeat the two bokoblins that are in this area and then head through the door on the east side of the room.

 - There are two skulltulas in this room hanging from the ceiling. Use the gale boomerang to knock them down and then defeat them with some swords strikes. Head to the north portion of the room and you’ll find a spider web on the floor. Pull out the lantern and burn the web. Fall down the hole and you’ll find a monkey trapped in a small cage. Break it free with a few sword strikes and it will run off.

Once that foe has been defeated, use the boomerang to strike down the walltulas that are crawling on the ivy. Climb the ivy and you’ll see the final monkey behind a gate in this room. There are two pillars on the sides of the cage with spinning panels. Use the gale boomerang to spin both of them and the door will open allowing the monkey to run free.

 - You can leave this area of the room through the passage on the right. There is a baba serpent here hanging from the ceiling but it should be no problem to you. Back in the other half of the room you’ll be on a higher ledge. Don’t jump down just yet as there is a treasure chest at the north side of the room. Jump over to it and open it to get some extra rupees. Go through the door and return to the room to the east.

They’ll all hang from the center branch and swing back and forth. Walk over to the edge of the platform and once the monkeys swing towards you, jump and grab them. Swing over to the other side of the room and release. Walk straight ahead and to the right of the boss door you can find a fairy in one of the pots. Capture it in a bottle or let it restore you life if needed for the boss battle. When you're ready, use the big key to unlock the door ahead to face the temple boss.

 - The door will shut behind you and you’ll notice a few spider bombs in the room. Then, out of the purple fog in the ground comes what looks like two big babas. The battle begins with the Twilit Parasite DIABABA.

 - Diababa only has one attack during this early phase of the battle. The two big babas will pull back and then toss themselves towards Link to attack. Just quickly roll to your left or right, or simply just use your shield to block the attacks. Once both big babas have been defeated and have sunk into the purple fog, Diababa will show its entire self.

 - The second phase of the battle begins and you’ll notice an orange like ball, which acts as a tongue of Diababa. This will turn out to be Diababa’s weakness. There really is not much Link can do at all in this early part of this phase. Just run around the room avoiding the dash attacks by the big babas of Diababa.

 - Eventually Ook, the baboon that we fought earlier, will appear and he’s holding a bombling. He’ll jump on a nearby branch and swing back and forth across the boss chamber. At this point, use the gale boomerang and target the bombling that the baboon is holding. Next, target the head of Diababa and release the boomerang. This will bring the bomb and explode it in Diababa’s face, sending him crashing down to the floor right next to Link. Use your sword and swipe the orange eye as many times as you can until Diababa gets back up.

 - Diababa will now unleash its most fierce attack when it shoots purple slime out of its mouth. It is quite hard to avoid but just keep moving and try to get to one of the corners of the room. Eventually the attack will stop and Ook will return, holding another bombling.

 - Repeat the same process by targeting the bomb and then Diababa’s head and it will come crashing down. Slash at him with your sword a few more times until it gets back up. That is about all there is to Diababa. After hitting a few bomblings and several sword swipes, Diababa will be defeated.
 
Summery:
 - Use the gale boomerang and target a bombling that is floating over the purple fog. Then target one of the big babas and release the gale boomerang and it will take the bomb and explode the big baba. Do this for both babas to complete the first phase of the battle.

 - Wait until Ook appears and he'll be carrying a bombling. Target the bombling with the gale boomerang and then target the head of Diababa. After hitting it with a bomb, it will come crashing to the floor. Slash away at its eyeball that sticks out of its tongue. Repeat this process until Diabba has been defeated.
 

 - Once defeated, the orange eye will fall out of Diababa’s mouth and turn into a full heart container. Diababa himself will burst into twilight and the temple item will be awarded to Link. This item here is a fragment of a fused shadow and there are three of them in total that Link needs to collect. Midna will be a bit vague about what it is, but mentions that this is what the Spirit of Light was talking about when it referred to as dark power. After some more talk, you’ll gain control of Link once again. Grab the heart container that was left behind to increase Link’s health to four hearts. Walk over to Midna and morph out of the temple. You’ll then be prompted to save your game.
