Shadow Temple

Artwork of the entrance to the Shadow Temple

The Shadow Temple is a dungeon from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that can be completed as the fourth or the fifth temple after Link removes the Master Sword for the first time. After completing the first three temples, Link will get a cutscene as soon as he gets to Kakariko Village. The evil spirit once sealed by Impa breaks free of the well and heads for the Shadow Temple. After this happens, Shiek will teach Link the Nocturne of Shadow, which will transport him to the entrance to the temple. This is also the only way to get to it. This temple is referred to by Shiek as the house of the dead. Undead enemies are the most present in this dungeon. The temple also contains a lot of illusions that Link must see through with the help of the Lens of Truth, including both invisible and false walls and floors and invisible traps and enemies. Link must journey through the temple to defeat the evil spirit Bongo-Bongo and release the sage of shadow and Zelda's attendant, Impa, who will give Link the Shadow Medallion so he can continue his quest
