|Main Item||Gale Boomerang|
|Boss(es)||Twilit Parasite: Diababa|
|Quest Reward(s)||One of the Fused Shadows|
Entrance to the Temple
It is housed within a massive tree in the Faron Woods that some theorize to be the dead remains of the Great Deku Tree from Ocarina of Time. It houses the Gale Boomerang, which is used to defeat its boss, the Twilit Parasite Diababa.
The temple is infested with Deku Babas, Baba Serpents, Skulltulas and Bokoblins. The Gale Boomerang, which is obtained after defeating the corrupted monkey chief Ook, is used inside the temple to manipulate wind powered switches and bridges allowing Link to access rooms deeper within the dungeon. Monkeys have been imprisoned in various locations throughout the temple by Ook. They must all be freed in order to help Link gain access to Diababa's lair. Upon defeating Diababa, Link will obtain one of the Fused Shadows.
This dungeon is different from the Forest Temple in Ocarina of Time in that it has only one level as opposed to multiple floors, and is far more organic in its design — though the first room of this temple is notably similar to its Ocarina of Time counterpart. Twilight Princess's Forest Temple is also similar to the Woodfall Temple in Majora's Mask in that a lot of the rooms seem to be very swamp-like.
If Link wants to re-visit the Temple, he will need the Clawshot to get any farther than the main room. This is because the monkeys he rescued earlier will now only help him get to the boss room. However, there are vines on the left and right side of the main room, so Link can use the Clawshot to get over to the other sides.
