The Baran Do temple was a temple in Dor'shan, capital of the planet Dorin, where Baran Do Sages lived and trained in the Force.


The Temple was a large four level ziggurat that gradually darkened toward the summit. Surrounded by two-story outbuildings, the estate upon which it was built was surrounded by a polished, retractable fence that was covered in transparisteel.

The entrance to the Temple was daunting to outsiders. The black stone of the walls to either side of the main door were inspired by the two black holes of the system, while the white columns that stretched to the ceiling represented the stability created by the Kel Dor, a species native to Dorin. The blue ceiling sparkled like the sky, while the brown tones of the permacrete floor was similar to Dorin's surface. Opposite the main doors was a raised dais, devoid of any furnishings. Doors from this chamber were hidden, but once opened they led into corridors that branched into training halls, classrooms, meditation rooms, and dining halls.

The combat training hall of the Temple was small and very lightly equipped. Staves and padded body armor were hung on wall racks, while the padded mats on the floor would keep the two sets of sparring pairs the hall could accommodate from severe injury on the ground.


As of 43 ABY, visiting Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker estimated that there were six masters and at least twenty students occupying the Temple.
