The Gate Room is a pentagonal room on the Temple Island. It is actually an inner chamber with 2 exits that rotates within a circular outer wall that has 5 openings. A mechanism rotates the inner chamber so as its exits align with more openings.

The chamber is adorned with 5 pilars ornamented with big effigies of beetles. Each beetle has a viewer that displays an aspect of Gehn's rule on Riven.




  • The main entrance to the south leads to a bridge leading directly to the back door of the Temple.
