“The Scrolls say there is a hidden temple on the island. If you find it, it will give the ninja pure elemental powers, powers that can destroy the indestructible army.”
Misako to the ninja, Wu, and Dr. Julien in "Island of Darkness"

The Temple of Light is a temple on the Dark Island, hidden atop one of the island's largest mountains, which can only be revealed with the use of a special medallion. The First Spinjitzu Master built it as a hideout during the war.

Its walls are covered with paintings of the ninja's previous adventures, including them finding the Destiny's Bounty, creating their vehicles out of their golden weapons, facing the Great Devourer, and even them looking at the murals. In the center is the symbol of the Green Ninja with a bell above it, with the four ninja's symbols surrounding it.

History

Background

Before the creation of Ninjago, the Temple of Light was one of the only existing locations on the planet, along with the Golden Peaks.[1] Using its powerful energies on gold from the Golden Peaks, the First Spinjitzu Master forged the Golden Weapons of Spinjitzu. After the Overlord came into being and led the Stone Army against him, the First Spinjitzu Master began using the Temple of Light as a hideout in his war with the dark entity, likewise employing the Golden Mech he hid within in his battles. After defeating the Overlord, the First Spinjitzu Master hid the Golden Mech within the temple, with the Elemental Blades acting as keys and sinking it in the Endless Sea with the rest of the Dark Island.

The Last Voyage

Misako revealed to the ninja in a scroll that the gold in the Golden Weapons were from the Golden Peaks, but they were forged in the Temple of Light. Misako theorized that if the ninja were to make it to the temple, they would be able to unlock their Elemental Blades. She then turned to Lloyd, proclaiming that, if he could find the so-called "Instrument of Peace," he would unlock the power of the Golden Dragon.

Island of Darkness

After a long pursuit by the Stone Army, the ninja managed to climb the mountain. As seen by Jay earlier, the Temple was shrouded in a light cloud. They opened the doors, only to find murals of them unlocking their vehicles, finding the Destiny's Bounty, and facing the Great Devourer. Cole even spotted a painting of them looking at the murals (possibly for comic effect). As the Stone Army climbed, the ninja found the circles that represented their elements. Lloyd realized shortly after that the bell above them was the Instrument of Peace his mother had spoken of previously.

Unbeknownst to the ninja, a future version of Wu was transported close to the entrance of the temple along with the Time Twins, Acronix and Krux. The twins ran toward the ninja, attempting to alter the timeline, but Wu stopped them, inadvertently zapping them with temporal energy and transporting them and himself away again.[2]

Upon striking the bell, Lloyd became surrounded by a white beam, which then reflected off of him, striking a crystal and lighting up pillars behind the others. As the light beams continually refracted, each ninja was enveloped, gaining their new kimonos and blades. Lloyd rose in the air and spun as he unlocked his power. Once the ninja channel their power to him, he fell, equipped with his new kimono. With their new-found powers, the ninja easily defeated the Stone Warriors surrounding them. Lloyd then summoned up the power of the Golden Dragon, which scared off the remainder of the army.

Rise of the Spinjitzu Master

As the ninja climbed up the mountain after the Falcon alerted them, they realized the purpose of their Elemental Blades. Once the ninja inserted each of their blades into individual sockets in the floor, they unlock the battle suit the First Spinjitzu Master used against the Overlord.

Codename: Arcturus

The ninja return to the Temple for Lloyd to give his Golden Power to the other ninja.

Dark Island Trilogy, Part 1

Clouse, having lost the Teapot of Tyrahn after being chased off by the inhabitants of Stiix, eventually traveled to the Island of Darkness to restore his lost magic. Now rejuvenated by the sinister energies of the continent, Clouse came up with a new plan; to constantly assault the Temple of Light with the Dark Matter troves still buried within the island. Knowing the Temple's defenses against its influence would eventually collapse, Clouse set to work using the Sky Pirates to enslave a workforce made of kidnapped fishermen, knowing that should the Temple of Light be corrupted, both Ninjago and the Dark Island would be consumed by darkness.

Dark Island Trilogy, Part 2

Withstanding an onslaught by the ninja, Flintlocke and his fellow Sky Pirates retreated to the Temple of Light to assist Clouse in his corruption of the sacred structure. Likewise, Clouse, after revealing his plans to Sensei Wu, escaped on the reconstructed Misfortune's Keep and flew to the Temple to finish his plot.

Dark Island Trilogy, Part 3

Barely holding up against the Dark Matter placed against its defenses, the Temple of Light would collapse under the power of the final trove delivered by Clouse and the Sky Pirates. Slowly being corrupted, the source of light being darkened caused the Island of Darkness and Ninjago to come together to spread its shadows. However, Wu, returning with the repaired Golden Mech, used the power of its blade to purify and disperse the darkness from the Temple of Light, turning it pure and restoring good to Ninjago, separating the islands.

Trivia

  • The role of the crystals is 'to connect and channel the light and power.'[3]
  • In "Enter the Digiverse," the ninja reflect light/Golden Power off each other in a very similar way to how the temple's crystals reflect light off each other. This is highlighted on the Fall of the Golden Master DVD cover.
  • In "Codename: Arcturus," Lloyd re-struck the bell to restore the ninja's element but neither kimono nor Elemental Blades were given. This is possible because he was splitting his Golden Power, instead of gaining it.
    • However, Lloyd's Techno robe did change into a design identical to his later Stone Armor variant.
  • It seems to act as the light counterpart to the Temple of Fortitude, as both temples acted as places of refuge for their respective owners and were placed on the opposite halves of Ninjago.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, if a human without Elemental Powers were to hit the bell, they would receive no powers or True Potential.[4]
