Desert Temples are known as the generated structures that spawn naturally in Desert Biomes. They usually spawn made out of sandstone. A secret room spawns under the temple, discovered by destroying the blue wool block. The best way to get down is to destroy a block beside the blue wool, since directly the blue wool is a pressure place that blows the Desert Temple up.
If you want to find the Desert Temple, it is better for you to use the Desert Temple finder by Chunk Base. How to use this finder? There are two requirements that you need to gather. The first one is the seed. For technical reasons, you have to know the seed of your world to use Desert Temple finder, unless you want to find a seed for a new world. For those who are playing SSP, this one is to fetch the seed from your savegame. Alternatively, you are able to use the /seed command in game. In SMP, you are able to use the same command if you have sufficient rights. Otherwise, however, you are dependent on the server owner, who began the world and has access to the savegame and config files.
The second one is technical. Desert Temple finder uses a few relatively new web technologies. As a result, a few features may be disabled for older browsers. You are recommended using the newest version of a major browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge.
Here is the usage of Desert Temple finder:
- Seed Selection
First of all, select a seed and version. You are able to either type it in manually or you are able to load it from your savegame. The second option can be done by clicking on Load from Save and selecting your level.dat or by drag and dropping the level.dat file into your browser window. Level.dat is the one small file placed in the folder of each Minecraft savegame. You are able to find the savegames in the saves folder of your Minecraft installation. On Windows, you are able to use %appdata%\.minecraft\saves to get to that folder.
Once you enter the seed and version you are able to begin using the map. If you want to scroll, you can use your arrow keys while your mouse cursor points at the map, or move your mouse while holding down the left mouse button. You are able to use the slider below the map or your mousewheel for zooming. The lower inputs allow you to go to a certain point of the map and set a marker here. Feel free to remove and add the marker by double clicking on the map. The Save Map button is for those who want to save the currently shown map as png image file.
When you use a touch-enabled device, an extra option for enabling or disabling touchscreen control will show up below the map. With that option enabled, you are able to drag the map with your finger to navigate, you are able to pinch to zoom in and out, and you are able to tap and hold to set a marker on the map.
