This is one of the largest single rooms in Chozodia. It is the last room containing Zebesians before the Ruins Test. From the entrance, there is a short passage that leads into an open and much larger chamber. In the center of the room is a large M-shaped structure in midair. Atop the structure are five flat-sided green columns, which are part of the background. Further into the background, large black portions of wall are visible, as are Chozo hieroglyphs present in other areas of Chozodia, which depict a cleric blessing a disciple, offerings to a royal, and warriors with their spears interlocked.
On the underside of the structure are platforms made of Pit Blocks; one Zebesian is found atop each, patrolling left and right. To the left of the structure is a tall midair wall, and to its side are four midair block platforms, which lead to the top of the wall. The top of the wall has a slight incline and is connected to a bridge that runs under two ceiling blocks. It ends with a large Fake Block that, when shot, destroys the entire bridge in a chain reaction.
Samus enters this room on her way to the top of the ruins. If the Pirate Alarm System is active, a Zebesian will follow her into the room and give chase. The three Zebesians in the room already will drop from their perches and pursue her as well. To avoid them, Samus must climb to the top of the wall and quickly cross the bridge, then shoot the block at the end of it to destroy the bridge. This will drop the Zebesians to the bottom of the room, where they will lose track of her. A shutter blocks the exit until the alarm turns off. On subsequent visits, a larger barrier with Chozo markings lowers in front of the exit, which can be destroyed with a Power Bomb.
- 3 Zebesians (4 if alarm is active)

- "Scramble up the shaft in the area's upper left section, then run right. When you reach the metallic barrier, turn to the left and blast a large block. A chain reaction will cause your pursuers to fall and the barrier to rise."
