Ku'lero Temple is a location in CrossWorlds. This area is exclusive to the A New Home DLC. It is a temple in the middle of a crater on an island north-west of The Croissant. This is the final temple of CrossWorlds.

Ku'lero Temple

This massive temple structure is located on a remote island inside an enormous crater. It was long believed that the end of the Track would reside deep inside the mountains of Sapphire Ridge however the temple found there merely serves as a teleporter which transports Seekers to the final leg of the journey.

Huge curved pine trees litter the sparse landscape. Pockets of dark reflective crystal can be found all throughout the structure and they seem to slowly overtake the temple almost like a living organism.

Layout[edit | edit source]

Ku'lero Temple has several large and convoluted levels that you must descend through to reach the bottom of the crater.

After passing through a few linear entrance rooms, you reach a large outdoor hub area with a landmark. Several shortcut teleporters back to this landmark will unlock while you progress further through the dungeon. From here you can continue either east or west, and complete two small loops of puzzle rooms before unlocking a third set of rooms leading to the top floor of the Bridge. From here, you must return to the landmark and complete the other side to unlock the elevator down.

Floor B1 is very small, containing only the midboss fight.

Floor B2 contains two large and convoluted loops of puzzle rooms, both of which also branch upwards to previously inaccessible parts of the outdoor area on the ground floor. You must complete both loops to continue downwards.

Floor B3 has a smaller loop of rooms, containing four large bounce puzzles and a major battle against the stacking statues.

Starting from floor B4 is a long enemy rush during which you drop down a long ways to finally reach the bottom of the crater. Beyond this lies the boss fight, and the Secret of the Ancients.

Botanics[edit | edit source]

Ku'lero Temple, like the Temple Mine, is one of the only dungeons to have botanics in it, although unlike the Temple Mine they are only found in the outdoor areas. These botanics tend to have high unlock requirements, so some grinding may be required to unlock their botanic menu entries.

Role in the Plot[edit | edit source]

In CrossWorlds[edit | edit source]

Ku'lero Temple is the final stage of the Track of the Ancients. This is the end goal of Operation Trackwalker and the final destination of Seekers. It is built inside the massive crater that was formed when the Message of the Sky landed.

During the A New Home DLC, access to Ku'lero Temple is finally unlocked, with the opening being shadow dropped with only a day's notice. A large number of Seekers gather in Sapphire Ridge for the opening, which is led by the Trackwalker General in person. Within the temple, they descend into the crater, fighting another guardian of the Track, the monk Gynthar. At the very bottom of the crater, they must confront their final trial: the Gods of Shape themselves. After defeating them, the true Secret of the Ancients is revealed: a portal to another world, which the Ancients used to leave Shadoon. As more Seekers complete the Temple and channel power into the portal, it will eventually open, leading the way to a sequel to CrossWorlds, CrossWorlds: New Horizons. The Gods offer one final gift before leaving: 1 CP for every element.

In CrossCode[edit | edit source]

Lea and all her friends gather together to complete the Ku'lero Temple. Unlike in previous dungeons, this temple contains many outdoor, non-instanced areas, where Lea can meet and talk with the other characters. One particularly notable encounter is with Luke on floor B3, where he asks Lea on a date.

Hlin, Albert, Buggy, Schneider and Luke will always reach the end of the dungeon before Lea, even though they chose not to race. Emilie will also beat Lea if she chose to race and took more than 2 hours to complete the dungeon. Otherwise she will arrive immediately after Lea. Apollo, Joern, Shizuka and Satoshi arrive after. C'tron never arrives, having apparently left part way through the dungeon. Worrying about him, Lea and Emilie decide to go visit him in Homestedt.
