How to find desert temples in Minecraft
Deserts might seem like the worst place for living in Minecraft, but hidden in these sands are rich desert temples.
Desert temples, also known as pyramids, were added to Minecraft version 1.3.1. Searching for these rare structures is a challenging experience. These structures can generate above the game as well as sometimes below the sand. Due to this, players may walk right past a desert temple.
Desert temples are made out of sandstone blocks, chiseled sandstone, and orange terracotta. If some sandstone blocks come out of sand uncommonly, there could be a hidden desert temple underground.
Finding desert temples in Minecraft
As players might guess, desert temples generate only in desert biomes. These pyramid-shaped structures are exclusive to desert biomes. There is no specific way to find desert temples except exploration.
In Java Edition, desert temples generate in desert biomes, whereas in the Bedrock edition, players can find them in desert hills as well.
The best way to find desert temples in Minecraft is by exploring a large desert. To make this process easier, players can use maps. They can right-click on an empty map to create a map of the desert area. And they can also try looking for a desert temple on the map, which will appear in an odd shape and color.
Desert temple seeds can help players get a resource boost right from the start. Players can try some of these desert temple seeds from r/minecraftseeds:
Seed: -1184712211493011748 [Java]
Desert Temple Coordinate: 256 77 58
This seed has a plain village close to the spawn. There is also a savanna village close to the desert temple and the mesa biome in the west direction.
Seed: 15575687409523 [Java]
Desert Temple Coordinate: 20 69 30
In this seed, players can find a desert temple mixed with a village blacksmith house. They can get some iron tools and resources from four chests under the temple.
Seed: 624107090 [Bedrock]
Desert Temple Coordinate: -334 72 -364
Looting a desert temple in Minecraft
At the bottom of a desert temple, players can find four different loot chests. These chests may carry many valuable items, including diamonds, gold, enchanted golden apple, and enchanted books. But they must be careful while going down, as there is a deadly TNT trap under the temple.
If a player mines the purple block while standing on it, they will fall on a stone pressure plate that will activate nine TNTs.
The right way to loot a desert temple is by digging the orange terracotta blocks at the corner. After reaching the bottom, players must break the pressure plate.
Desert Temples (aka Pyramids) are generated structures that spawn naturally in Desert Biomes. They spawn mostly made out of sandstone. A secret room spawns under the temple, found by destroying the blue terracotta block. An efficient way to get down is to destroy a block next to the blue wool, since directly under the blue terracotta is a pressure place that blows the Desert Temple up.
Desert Temples look like pyramids; they have stairs going to the top, a main entrance and a few hidden ones, etc.. They are constructed mainly of sandstone, and have wool. Underneath the blue terracotta is a pressure plate; blowing the whole structure up. A safe way to get down is to mine the terracotta next to the blue terracotta, since there isn't any pressure plate there. There are also 4 chests in the secret room, containing items and mainly some rotten flesh and bones, saying that people died down there. There are also sometimes golden ingots. Desert Temples are one of the most valuable structure, having the chests with valuables, and the blue terracotta and TNT to blow your friend up.
Desert Temples sometimes spawn in Desert Biomes, never anywhere else. In one, do NOT mine the blue terracotta and fall down; you will be blown up. To get down safely, mine the orange terracotta next to the blue terracotta. Then you can drop down safely. A good way to get down is to drop water down, thus destroying the pressure plate and making a safe way down.
The naturally generated structures in Minecraft evoke a sense of wonder and adventure whenever the player finds one. We take a look at the Minecraft Desert temple which is possibly one of the most iconic structures in the game till now.
Naturally generated structures are a staple of the game and facilitates the adventure and exploration part of the game. The structures spawn in specific biomes and may contains deadly traps and even magnanimous treasures. Raiding a monster infested structure may be tough but we guide you accurately of the dangers and specifications of this sandy temple!

What can you find inside desert temples in Minecraft?
In Minecraft, there are several generated structures. Villages, Pillager Outposts, Ruined Portals, Desert Temples and more. The desert temple is considered by many to be the best one and it's easy to see why.
In a desert, they're fairly easy to find with the orange blocks on the side that stick out on the sandy landscape. They're not too difficult to get into and the trap inside is pretty easily avoidable.
They also have really good loot, making them a highly sought after structure for Minecraft players. Here's everything that can be found in a desert temple.
Loot available in Minecraft desert temples
MinecraftDesert Temples spawn in deserts and will generally be mostly above ground. Sometimes they're hidden a bit, but they're still one of the easiest generated structures to find.
They're marked by the orange blocks on the outside and they always have two towers on the outside and a smaller building on the inside.
Inside the temple are four chests. There is also a pressure plate in the center of the hole, which triggers the TNT underneath. Avoiding and then breaking that plate will prevent the TNT from exploding. Every so often there won't be any chests, but it is extremely rare.
In the four chests, there can be a pretty wide variety of items. Here's each item and its spawn rate.

For technical reasons, you need to know the seed of your world to use Desert Temple Finder, unless, of course, you want to find a seed for a new world. If you're playing SSP, the app is able to fetch the seed from your savegame. Alternatively, you can use the /seed command ingame. In SMP, you can use the same command if you have sufficient rights. Otherwise, however, you're dependent on the server owner, who started the world and has access to the savegame and config files.
This app uses some relatively new web technologies. As a result, some features may be disabled for older browsers. I recommend using the latest version of a major browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari.
The first thing you should do is select a seed and version. You can either type it in manually, or you can load it from your savegame. The latter can be done by clicking on "Load from Save..." and selecting your level.dat, or by drag&dropping the level.dat file into your browser window. Level.dat is a small file located in the folder of every Minecraft savegame. You can find the savegames in the saves folder of your Minecraft installation. On Windows you can use %appdata%\.minecraft\saves to get to that folder.
Levels allow you to store and reuse seeds on this website, without having to load your savegame every time. When loading a seed from a level, the seed will automatically be stored as a level.
You should also know that a seed is always a number (up to around 20 digits). If you type in anything else (like letters), it will be converted to a number. The app does this the same way Minecraft does, so it's safe to use letters (and other characters) as well.
Once you entered your seed and version you can start using the map. To scroll, use your arrow keys while your mouse cursor points at the map, or move your mouse while holding down the left mouse button. You can use the slider below the map or your mousewheel for zooming. The lower inputs allow you to go to a specific point (e.g., your base) of the map and set a marker there. You can always remove and add the marker by double clicking on the map. The "Save Map" button allows you to save the currently shown map as png image file.
When using a touch-enabled device, an extra option for enabling/disabling touchscreen control will appear below the map. With that option enabled, you can drag the map with your finger to navigate, you can pinch to zoom in and out, and you can tap and hold to set a marker on the map. By double tapping on the map, you can quickly enable/disable the functionality as well.

A desert pyramid, commonly referred to as desert temple, is a sandstone structure generated in deserts. Each pyramid has a hidden chamber containing loot that is protected by a TNT trap.
Desert pyramids generate uncommonly in deserts. The floor is always at Y-coordinate 64,[untilJE 1.18] sometimes causing the pyramid to be partially buried in sand. In Bedrock Edition, the pyramids also generate in desert hills.
Main article: /Structure
Desert pyramids are constructed with normal, chiseled and cut sandstone, orange and blue terracotta, sandstone slabs and sandstone stairs. There is one main entrance at the ground floor level and two more entrances on the left and right sides near the top of the pyramid. There is also a one block wide hole at the top of the desert pyramid, which can potentially be used to enter.
In the center of the pyramid's 21×21 ground floor is a checkerboard pattern of terracotta and sandstone, with a block of blue terracotta in the center. Underneath this terracotta is a chamber containing four chests, which are rigged by a stone pressure plate directly under the blue terracotta block. The pressure plate is connected to a 3×3 grid of TNT, which means that if a player or mob unintentionally steps on the plate, it sets off the TNT, which destroys the chests and their loot.

In Java Edition, each desert pyramid chest contains items drawn from 2 pools, with the following distribution:
In Bedrock Edition, each desert pyramid chest contains items drawn from 2 pools, with the following distribution:
- ↑ abThe size of stacks (or for unstackable items, number) of this item on any given roll.
- ↑ abThe weight of this item relative to other items in the pool.
- ↑ abThe odds of finding any of this item in a single chest.
- ↑ abThe number of items expected per chest, averaged over a large number of chests.
- ↑ abThe average number of chests the player should expect to search to find any of this item.
- ↑ abAll enchantments are equally probable, includingtreasure enchantments (except Soul Speed), and any level of the enchantment is equally probable.
- ↑ ab'Nothing' does not refer to the chance of an empty chest. Instead, it refers to the chance that the random loot generator does not add any loot on a single roll.
The loot chances above are per chest, and there are four chests. For example, each chest has a 2.6% chance of an enchanted golden apple, but with four chests, each pyramid has a 10% chance of having at least one.

Issues relating to "Desert pyramid" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.
- The orange symbols on the outside is the Ancient Egyptian symbol for life, an Ankh
- As there is no light in the lower chamber, mobs sometimes spawn inside and trigger the TNT trap, destroying the chests and loot before any player can reach it. Rarely a lava lake might generate next to TNT, also potentially setting off the trap.
- A desert pyramid does not generate fully if generated partially on lakes.
- The top of the pyramid's ceiling is almost always above ground, so a buried pyramid is accessible, but fall damage is likely.
- When a desert pyramid generates above a canyon, it has a deeper foundation like the village houses prior to the Village and Pillage update.

While I was carefully doing this, involuntarily continuing the massage, she said that it was too hot here and that we would now go. To her room, where I would continue to fondle her. My opinion was not asked at all, and she knew the answer. When I finished, she took away the towel and, walking through her especially sweet places, thrust it under my nose: Smell.
Nothing to do.
