Temple Desecrated is a music track that is unlocked at the Ancient Guthix Temple during the While Guthix Sleeps quest. The song is also featured on Through The Ages Original Soundtrack.


There are two main violin melodies and counter-melodies, and these repeat for the majority of the piece. There is also a consistent drum and piano harmony, and for parts, the steady "voice" mentioned earlier. French horns play an altered version of the RuneScape theme in the background.

The track utilises a consistent percussion rhythm throughout the whole piece, with violins playing the melody the majority of the time. Parts of the piece share similarities to The Sound of Guthix with regards to the choral-like monastic parts, although this piece is at a much faster tempo.
