The Temples of Doom is a group of large, smooth pagodas on the northern side of the Blackfellows Hand Trail, 3 kilometres from the Wolgan Road.

There are wonderful views from the tops of the pagodas, which are arranged in tiers down the slope from the road.

The original name was Temple of Doom, applied to the largest of the pagodas, an obvious reference to the Indiana Jones movie. Over the years the group has become know as the Temples of Doom.
