How to find desert temples in Minecraft
Deserts may seem like the worst place to live in Minecraft, but hidden in those sands are rich desert temples.
Desert temples, also known as pyramids, were added in Minecraft version 1.3.1. Finding these rare structures is a difficult experience. These structures can be generated above game as well as sometimes under sand. Because of this, players can walk right past a Desert Temple.
Desert temples are made of blocks of sandstone, chiseled sandstone and orange terracotta. If some sandstone boulders are sticking out of the sand in an unusual way, there might be a Desert Temple hidden underground.
Finding Desert Temples in Minecraft
As players can guess, Desert Temples only spawn in Desert Biomes. These pyramid-shaped structures are exclusive to desert biomes. There is no specific way to find desert temples except exploration.
In the Java Edition, Desert Temples spawn in Desert Biomes, while in the Bedrock Edition, players can also find them in Desert Hills.
The best way to find desert temples in Minecraft is to explore a great desert. To facilitate this process, players can use cards. They can right click on an empty map to create a map of the desert area. And they can also try to find a Desert Temple on the map, which will appear in a strange shape and color.

Loot a desert temple in Minecraft
At the bottom of a desert temple, players can find four different loot chests. These chests can hold many valuable items, including diamonds, gold, an enchanted golden apple, and enchanted books. But they have to be careful on the way down, as there is a deadly TNT trap under the temple.
If a player exploits the purple block while standing on it, it will fall on a stone pressure plate which will activate nine TNTs.
The correct way to loot a desert temple is to dig out the orange terra cotta blocks on the corner. After reaching the bottom, the players have to break the pressure plate.
