When the level starts, you stand in a sort of Temple Complex, go R/R and open the gate to a Store room, get the Ammo and Flares while you climb to the top of the stack and jmp to the walkway, go into the CS and follow up to shoot a Dog in the room, look in the L corner for the Jmpswitch to lower a rope in the Store room, go back there and use it to swing over to the other walkway, (don’t go all the way down on the rope, or you’ll swing too far) and go into the CS L, down the ladder and turn to grab the Jmpswitch below, out of the gate and you are back at the start of the level, go to the Store room and notice one of the crates in the NW lowered, pull out the one that was behind and get the Guardian Key. Climb back to the room where you shot the Dog and go into the CS in the L back, follow to a room with a Ninja, shoot him and the vase and use the Key in the Lock W, the trapdoor opens.
Dive into the water and swim to the yellowish glow in the SW, get the Crowbar on one of the ledges and go back for some air if you need it, now look for another cave down in the W, swim up into a square hole, look in the NW back corner to get Secret #1, a Red Rose. Swim back E and L/L and swim up into another cave with air, climb out, look for the Torch in the SE corner and take it with you when you enter the Crowbardoor, follow to a room with a burning Altar.
The Temple Key.
On the centre Altar is a Key we need, so go behind the Altar and down the ladder (drop the Torch in first), follow the passage to a green room, go L and at the gate climb up R and turn around, use the Jmpswitch and go get the Torch, light it on the wall torch inside this alcove, return to the green room, where you can light the 2 wall torches to raise a block in a room we go to later. First return to the Altar, the fire at the Key will now be off and get Ammo and the Temple Key. Go back to the gate and climb up R at the Jmpswitch again, follow this passage up here shoot a Ninja (who drops a ˝ MP) and climb down into the room where you raised the block, shoot the Dog and get some Ammo in a window. Climb the block and up to the next floor, shoot the Ninja and open the door to the Temple Area.

At the end of the passage you can use the MS or just run out and slide/jmp/grab the opposite CS, follow to next room, shoot Bat and runjmp to the Timer Tile, it will raise a block opposite the Tile, so you can runjmp onto it on the L side and do a running jmp/grab to the passage in the R hand corner. Shoot the Dog and follow to a slide, the second slide you have to do backwards, grab the edge and pull up/backflip into the Crossing room. Water turned to Lava.

Climb back up and find the ladder in the E side of the building, go up and reach another part of the Temple grounds, go get some Ammo and go L/L to shoot the Ninja guarding the Hand of Sirius on the block, go back and L, the door opens and you’re back in the 2nd Temple square. Go to the 1st temple square and find the NE door open. Go in to the 3rd Temple square.
3rd Temple square.
Find a button on the pillar R of the red doors W and the trapdoor in the SW corner opens. Go there and run in facing W, so you’ll slide backwards, grab the edge and shimmy R to a breaktile, drop, sidejmp R, jmp/grab up to the crack and go R to a CS, use the Jmpswitch inside to open a gate in the 3rd Temple square (You’ll see a couple of Ninjas guarding the second Hand). Go climb the ladders and reach the roof of the structure in 3rd Temple square, jmp/grab the W wall and shimmy to the Vase, shoot it and drop from the N side of the grey pillar to grab the Jmpswitch there to raise a block so you can reach the red doors on the S ledge of 1st Temple square. Go to the open gate NW of you and shoot yourself some Ninjas, go get the 2nd Hand of Sirius on the pedestal and drop behind it to push abutton. (which will probably open a gate to get the last Secret)
Get some Ammo the Ninja dropped and some in one of the plants on a block and go back to 1st Temple square, hop on the block and find a switch in the W, open the last door (SE) in this square with it and go in. Shoot a Ninja and some Dogs and go into the reddish L passage, L up some steps to use the Jmpswitch, which will open the door to the Key in the 2nd Temple square. First go back to the 1st temple square and into the open NW door, look L next to the Lions steps and get Secret #3, the Red Rose inside. Make your way back to 2nd Temple square and get the Guardian Key from the S door, go back into the passage where the spikes are and into the small store room L you opened before. Behind the crates is a Tile which will trigger the Timed gate in the gate-passage W of this room, first stand on it and wait for the Ninja to go out to the passage, so you can shoot him before attempting the Timed run.
Stand with your back against the wall, looking at the exit, jmp on the crates, runjmp off to the L side of the exit with a R curve in the air, so you land facing R a bit already and sprint sharp around the R corner and straight to the gate, it’s a tight run, but possible after some practice. Inside, there is a button in the corner to open a gate in opposite corner. Go up the sloped passage and use your Key in the lock.
