The Temple Grounds is a large area on the Temple Mountain on Aether. It is called such due to the fact that the Great Temple is in the center. Many vermin like Splinters are commonly found here. It has three direct branches in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes: a passage to Torvus, Agon, and Sanctuary Fortress. The Dark World version of this region is the Sky Temple Grounds.

Areas and main roomsEdit

This sector can be divided into three main areas:

Splinter Hive (subterranean area)Edit

This area is mostly underground and is the first area to be explored in the game by Samus. It has traces of a previous attempt to colonize the area by the GFMC Task Force Herakles. The hive is full of dead troopers reanimated by the Ing, along with lifeless marine corpses and Splinters.
