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 rooms[edit | edit source]

This sector can be divided into three main areas:

Splinter Hive (subterranean area)[edit | edit source]

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.

Main rooms[edit | edit source]

GFMC area (east area)[edit | edit source]

The satellite installed by Federation forces.

This area was colonized by the GFMC and is partially industrialised. It also has many Luminoth Ruins, and includes the transport to the Agon Wastes and the Sanctuary Fortress. Some dead Galactic Federation troopers can be found here, killed by Splinters or other local predators.

Main rooms[edit | edit source]

Ruins area (west area)[edit | edit source]
