- Not to be confused with Golden Temple.
A Key Temple is a special kind of temple situated on Donkey Kong Island as well as some neighboring islands. They made their debut in Donkey Kong Country Returns, where there is one in each of the 8 main worlds. They are unlocked by collecting all of the world's K-O-N-G Letters. They must all be beaten by collecting the Rare Orb at the end of each temple, each with its own set hazards. Collecting all 8 rare orbs open the entrance to the Golden Temple. Unlike the other levels in the game, Key Temples do not have KONG Letters, and only have Time Attack, Mirror Mode, and Puzzle Piece medals.
