The Faj'ro Temple, also known as the Hourglass or the Heat Dungeon, is a location in CrossWorlds, and the third dungeon encountered during the game. This is where Seekers obtain the Cold element, as well as the White Key, allowing them to open Silver Chests.
This temple stands in a large ravine right before Ba'kii Kum and is the second challenge a Seeker can acquire the second element: Cold.
To enter the dungeon, however, a Seeker must visit Ba'kii Kum, home to the Shad. Only there can they find the key to gain access to the temple.
Its unique shape granted it the nickname: Hourglass. Steam-powered furnaces, water blocks, and poles that can hold elemental charges are what Seekers must use to overcome the puzzles inside.
In contrast to the infested Temple Mine, Faj'ro Temple is home to moths, floating jellyfish, and fierce Golems.
Faj'ro Temple is shaped like an hourglass. It has five floors, with the middle one being the smallest, consisting of only a single room. The path through the temple is described here:
Lea enters the temple, arriving at Balance Room 1. From here, she must pass through the Left Chambers, obtaining a key to unlock the West Ground Floor path to Balance Room 2. Here, Lea must collect three keys: one in each of the Tests of Memory, and one in the East Ground Floor path that loops back to Balance Room 1. Two of these keys are used to unlock the paths leaving the upper floor of Balance Room 2. These both lead to high ledges in Balance Room 1, and reaching both of these will allow Lea to unlock the path onward, which also requires the third key. From here, Lea will fight the midboss in the Sand Terror room and obtain the Cold element on the small Floor 2.
On reaching Floor 3, the only open path leads west to the Test of Strength. Lea must then travel through Floor 4's west pathway, the Large Fire Chamber on floor 3 (where the White Key is found) and Floor 4's east pathway to reach the east rooms on Floor 3, which contain a key. Four side rooms along this path offer four additional keys, and all five keys are required to unlock the final puzzle in the South Corridor. Lea must then fight through the Chamber of Prosperity to obtain the Faj'ro Master Key and unlock the boss room.
The only connected location is Maroon Valley via doors in Entry Test, Chamber of Ice and Blazing Lair.
The room map of Faj'ro Temple is somewhat confusing, due to the presence of many rooms with identical or similar names.

Role in the Plot
The Faj'ro Temple is the second dungeon on the Track of the Ancients. Seekers must travel here to unlock the Cold element, as well as collect the Red Flame Shade, which allows them to travel north from Rookie Harbor and reach the later stages of the Track. For completing the Temple, Seekers are rewarded by E'nel, who extends their SP bar to 8 SP points. The Trackwalker General gives them an additional reward of a Circuit Override.
After dueling Apollo on the steps of the dungeon, Lea races through the Faj'ro Temple with Emilie and C'tron. C'tron will always be first reaching the balcony halfway up the dungeon, with Lea beating Emilie if she takes less than 60 minutes to get there; the dungeon race timer is reset at the balcony, so the first half of the dungeon has no effect on the final result. For the second half of the dungeon, Lea must reach the end in 50 minutes to beat Emilie, and C'tron will always be last. After reaching the top of the dungeon, the three visit the heritage site and have a conversation about Lea's speech module issues, after which they all log out.
