Temple of Time
- This article is about the recurring landmark. For the dungeon in Twilight Princess, see Temple of Time (Dungeon).
The Temple of Time is a location that appears in three The Legend of Zelda games, including Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword. It was constructed to keep evil beings from touching the sacred Master Sword and entering the Sacred Realm. The Temple itself was built around the Pedestal of Time in which the Master Sword is embedded.
Ocarina of Time
The Temple of Time in Ocarina of Time is located in the northeastern section of the Hyrule Castle Town Market. After Link has collected all of the Spiritual Stones, Princess Zelda tells Link to go to the Temple and play the Song of Time with the Ocarina of Time in order to open the Door of Time. After placing all the three Spiritual Stones on the altar and playing the song, the Door of Time will open and reveal the Pedestal of Time along with the Master Sword. From here on out, Link can go in and out of the Temple to go either forwards or backwards in time.

The Temple of Time appears as a dungeon and a location in Twilight Princess. This dungeon is located deep within the Sacred Grove. During Link's second visit he will be able to explore a new area. This area is above the original area where Link had to previously solve the puzzle. There will be a door with a Sacred Grove Guardians blocking the entrance. Link will have to thrust the Master Sword back into its original pedestal to remove the guardian. This will make the door and entrance to the Temple of Time accessible.
This Temple is crawling with enemies. The Mini-Boss for the Temple of Time is a Darknut; an enemy engulfed in dark armor carrying a large sword and shield. Once Link vanquishes it, he's rewarded with the dungeon item, the Dominion Rod. The boss of the Temple of Time is Armogohma; an incredibly over-sized arachnid with a large eye accompanied by several smaller ones. Once Link conquers this boss, he's rewarded with a Heart Container and the third Mirror Shard.
