This article is about the altar in the Jungle Temple. For Corruption and Crimson altars, see Altar.

The Lihzahrd Altar is found naturally placed in the final chamber of the Jungle Temple, and is used with a Lihzahrd Power Cell to summon Golem. Each summoning consumes one Lihzahrd Power Cell from the player's inventory.

Like Lihzahrd Bricks, the Lihzahrd Altar can only be removed with the Picksaw, Laser Drill(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), or Luminite Pickaxes(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). Once picked up, the Lihzahrd Altar can be placed anywhere and used to summon Golem in any area, as long as Plantera has been defeated in the current world.


  • Pressing Use / Attack on the Lihzahrd Altar with a Lihzahrd Power Cell in the inventory will automatically consume it. The Lihzahrd Power Cell does not need to be held.
  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) After Plantera has been defeated, the Lihzahrd Bricks under the Lihzahrd Altar can be actuated, allowing players to move the Lihzahrd Altar before defeating Golem or obtaining the Picksaw.
  • The Lihzahrd Altar may also spawn on top of Wooden Spikes, which can be mined before acquiring the Picksaw, making it possible for the Lihzahrd Altar to be moved early. Players should exercise caution to avoid accidentally activating the Lihzahrd Altar while mining, e.g. by pressing the wrong key.
  • Paints can only affect the Lihzahrd Altar tiles and cannot affect the floating symbol above the altar.


  • The symbol that floats above the Lihzahrd Altar strongly resembles the Chakana.


  • Desktop 1.2.3:
    • The Golem can no longer be summoned from the Altar until Plantera is defeated.
    • The game will now verify there is a Lihzahrd Altar at the end of world generation. This should hopefully fix the bug with there sometimes being none.
