The Temple is a location in Wario Land 3. During the events of the game, Wario is flying with his plane over the woods until it runs out of gas and crashes. Unharmed, Wario then stumbles upon a cave. Inside the cave, he discovers a magical music box. He wants to take a closer look, and that causes him to be suddenly sucked into the music box to an alternate dimension. In the music box, a mysterious figure informs Wario that he is a god who once protected the world inside the box until an evil being sealed away his magical powers in five music boxes. In exchange for freeing it, the figure promises to send Wario back to his own world and let him keep any treasure he finds. Wario, of course, accepts the request and goes to find the music boxes.

During the course of the game, Wario can visit The Temple to consult the hidden figure, who tells the player which level to visit in order to progress.

After collecting all the music boxes, Wario returns to The Temple. Once there, the music boxes play a melody together. The song frees the sealed being, who turns out to be an evil being. The inhabitants of the world locked his power up in five music boxes but before he got imprisoned, he turned all of the music box's inhabitants into monsters. Wario eventually defeats him and restores the world to normal.
