Ocean Monuments, also known as Ocean Temples, Water Temples, or Water Dungeons, are naturally-generated structures which appear in Ocean biomes.


An Ocean Monument is constructed of Prismarine, Prismarine Brick, and Dark Prismarine, and is lit by Sea Lanterns. The monument consists of at least six rooms. These structures are large and pyramid-like. Inside the main entrance, there is a spire that goes up through the monument. At the top floor, there is an Elder Guardian that acts as a boss, though is not an official boss mob (except on Minecraft: Pocket Edition). One room has Wet Sponge covering the ceiling. In another room, eight gold blocks can be found hidden behind a 4x4x4 cube of Dark Prismarine.


  • Three Elder Guardians always spawn here, one in each wing and one in the room with the treasure.
  • Once the Elder Guardians are killed, they do not respawn.
