Holocron Chamber
General information

Tower of First Knowledge, Jedi Temple


Rise of the Empire era


Jedi Order

The Holocron Chamber was a sealed room located in the Tower of First Knowledge, one of the five spires of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. A branch of the expansive Jedi Archives, it was presided over by the Caretaker of First Knowledge and stored the holocrons containing the majority of the Order's most coveted secrets. Holocrons stored within this chamber were actively being studied or consult, therefore they were not held in the Holocron Vault.



Built along with the Tower which contained it, the chamber was presided over by fourteen generation of Caretakers. It was here, in 30 BBY a holocron containing information on the Anzati Dark Jedi Volfe Karkko activated causing concern for the Caretaker and the Jedi High Council.

The advanced holocron technology within this chamber remained largely unscathed during Operation: Knightfall, no doubt due to Darth Sidious's plans to use their power to study Sith history. However, during one of Sith assassin Galen Marek's infiltrations of the Temple, he visited the chamber. Resting on the pedestal of the rotunda was a holocron that, when activated, presented a Gatekeeper who demanded he complete the Jedi Trials in the bowels of the Temple.

When the Temple was destroyed during the Yuuzhan Vong War, the tower and the Holocron Chamber went with it. However, under the request of Grand Master Luke Skywalker, the Temple was restored, along with the Tower of First Knowledge and its interior chambers.


Sealed off to all but Jedi Masters, the rotunda contained the vast majority of the Order's most coveted holocrons. A short hallway led into the rotunda room from the bridge in the central shaft of the Tower. Lining the hall were consoles allowing access to several holocrons at once. In the center of the rotunda, a pedestal was placed for the display of any holocron currently being studied by the Caretaker.
