Spoiler Alert! This article describes a subject that is sensitive to plot development.

The Temple of Light became the resting place of the Triforce after the Era of Chaos. Unlike the other elemental temples, it does not lie within the vicinity of Hyrule, but rather in the Sacred Realm. It can be accessed by pulling the Master Sword from its pedestal in the Temple of Time. The only area within the Temple of Light visited is the Chamber of the Sages and is non-playable, unlike other elemental areas.

Rauru explains that while the Sacred Realm was not spared from becoming the Dark World, he used his powers to keep the Temple of Light and the Chamber of Sages within it intact.[1][2] Link subsequently accesses the Temple of Light each time he rescues one of the Seven Sages from one of Ganondorf's dungeon lairs. During the game's end, when Ganon is lying on the ground stunned, the Sages unite and deal a final blow to the beast.[3] Ganondorf is locked away in the Sacred Realm with the hope of peace for future generations.

Chamber of the Sages

The Chamber of the Sages is the location, where Link's body slept for seven years after he took the Master Sword out of the Pedestal of Time.[1][2] After Link completes each of the first five Adult Temples in the game, he is transported here so that the Sage can give him a Medallion that represents their power.

  1. 1.1 1.2 "I am Rauru, one of the ancient Sages... Ages ago, we ancient Sages built the Temple of Time to protect the entrance to the Sacred Realm... This is the Chamber of Sages, inside the Temple of Light... The Temple of Light, situated in the very center of the Sacred Realm, is the last stronghold against Ganondorf's evil forces. The Master Sword--the evil- destroying sword that you pulled out of the Pedestal of Time--was the final key to the Sacred Realm. Link... Don't be alarmed... Look at yourself...!" — Rauru, Ocarina of Time.
  2. 2.1 2.2 "But, remember... Though you opened the Door of Time in the name of peace... Ganondorf, the Gerudo King of Thieves, used it to enter this forbidden Sacred Realm! He obtained the Triforce from the Temple of Light, and with its power, he became the King of Evil... His evil power radiated from the temples of Hyrule, and in seven short years, it transformed Hyrule into a world of monsters. My power now has only little influence, even in this Sacred Realm... Namely, this Chamber of Sages. But there is still hope... The power of the Sages remains. When the power of all the Sages is awakened... The Sages' Seals will contain all the evil power in the void of the Realm... I, Rauru, am one of the Sages... And... Your power to fight together with the Sages makes you the Hero of Time! The Hero of Time, chosen by the Master Sword! Keep my spirit with you... And, find the power of the other Sages and add their might to your own!" — Rauru, Ocarina of Time.
  3. "The six Sages will open the sealed door and lure Ganondorf back into the Sacred Realm. I will then seal the door to the Sacred Realm from this world. Thus, Ganondorf the Evil King will vanish from Hyrule. Link... In order to do this, I need your courage again. Please protect me while I do my part. And here is a weapon that can penetrate the Evil King's defenses... The power given to the chosen ones... The sacred Arrow of Light!!!" — Princess Zelda, Ocarina of Time.
