The Chozo Ice Temple (called the Western Temple by Space Pirates) is a room in the Phendrana Drifts in Metroid Prime that connects to the Chapel Tunnel. The entrance to the Chapel Tunnel is blocked by a gate. Scanning the four busts of Chozos will reveal the Chozo Shaman. It can be destroyed with a Missile, granting access to a Bomb Slot behind it that activates the gate. A Chozo Artifact can be found here.

A Secret World can be found in the room: [1]

Statue base
"There appears to be a shell of ice encasing a water basin. The water originated from the statue's mouth."
"The statue's hands seem to be frozen in place."


  • The Space Pirates state that the Chozo Ice Temple is off limits, likely due to problems with the Sheegoths. This is found in a scan in Save Station B: "Western Temple is in phase 2 lockdown. All projects are postponed. Under no circumstances are personnel to attempt access."
