Events in Uncharted 2: Among ThievesEdit
During chapters 8 and 9, Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer explore the temple in order to find the Cintamani stone, or at least some clues to where it is. After enduring puzzles and traps, they discover the location. They must fight their way through Lazarevic's soldiers to get out of the temple.
Outside the main building is a courtyard-like area, surrounded by buildings and the odd vegetation. When first entering the temple, it appears grand; the walls are a rich gold and red and a large statue lies in the main room. Underneath are damp and dirty tunnels and a deadly trap. The trap is a ceiling covered in spikes that slowly descends, threatening to kill any trespassers. It can only be stopped by destroying the cogs that make it turn. The last room is huge and grand; beams of light shoot around the room using mirrors, and a giant Phurba dagger can be seen hanging from the roof. Underneath this room, at the very heart of the temple, is a complex map pinpointing the location of Shambhala.
