The Lion Temple was the center of Chima, being directly under Mount Cavora. CHI streams flowed down from Mount Cavora and into the temple, forming into CHI that was collected by the Lions and distributed to all the tribes monthly. It was also the entrance to the Lion City, though many Lions lived in the temple itself.
