Pandora's temple 2

Conceptual art of Pandora's Temple

Pandora's Temple is a temple that Pathos Verdes III constructed to house Pandora's Box, the most powerful weapon a mortal can wield.

Its construction was commanded by Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. The temple and its traps were made to prevent those who sought to use Pandora's Box against Zeus and Olympus. The building of Pandora's Temple was the largest architectural undertaking of its time.

To build the project they first set a base in the Desert of Lost Souls to oversee the project. People on flying horses or Griffins tied down the titan, Cronos. They then built it on the back of the mighty titan and chained it in place. To get to the temple one had to cross the Desert of Lost Souls, resist the song of the Sirens and kill all three of them.

The temple represents the growing madness of Pathos Verdes III as the first tasks are straightforward, but later on become more tasking and gruesome. Eventually, Pathos started using the bodies of family members as part of the trials. No one before had ever reached Pandora's Box, except for Kratos, who was the first and only person to do so. After 2,500 years, and having completed all of the challenges, its door finally opened to Kratos.

The temple appeared again in God of War III, still on the wounded back of the titan Cronos.
