Located in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the Jedi Training Chambers were located throughout the complex for lightsaber training. Padawans and Jedi Knights used the rooms for practice with the Force and a lightsaber. In some of the larger chambers, the walls and floors of were equipped with hologram projectors that projected scenery and opponents for Jedi sharpening up their saber skills. In the smaller training centers, the room was typically long and narrow, a place where two Jedi might practice dueling.

Layouts

Because of the many styles and forms of lightsaber combat, the Temple was home to a multitude of different chambers, each of which could range from a simple dojo, to a specialized combat training facility. Many training chambers were located in the first Knowledge quarter because it was the hub for Jedi learning.

The Tower of First Knowledge was home to at least two training chambers itself. One, near it's base, was a simple two story dojo, with racks along the walls holding training remotes and tapestries depicting various stances of lightsaber combat. Serra Keto would die at the hands of Darth Vader in this chamber; crushed under a fallen pillar.

Elsewhere in the Tower, there was a highly advanced chamber. Within, the room possessed a sunken center area, with the area under the second story balcony used for observation. Surrounding the sunken fighting area, in front of the balcony's support columns, were statues of Jedi Masters, each with a hollow center and a door in their stomachs. Within were housed holographic Jedi Training Droids, all of which wielded lightsabers capable of inflicting minor damage. On the second story, four crouching Jedi statues released the droids from their back; these droids were capable of casting lightning from their fingertips. Galen Marek would engage the dueling droids when he entered the ruins of the Temple during the Dark Times

While many of the training chambers were two stories and contained some sort of observation chamber, others were long hallways, with mirrors along the walls. In the observation areas, a Master or referee droid could control the various obstacles or other unique environmental hazards to test a trainee's skills. During A'Sharad Hett's training, he dueled the Dark Woman in a hololess chamber, where, she ultimately bested him. Anakin Skywalker made his apprentice Ahsoka Tano practice fifty repetitions of Niman Form I and record it; tasking her with re-watching her session and improving herself.

In the holographic training rooms, the walls and ceilings could transform into the images of a jungle or icy environment. In turn, the room's temperature could fluctuate from extremely hot to frigidly cold. Other platforms and holo-devices could be dispensed from the floors and walls to help continue the illusions of the chambers. During the Clone Wars, before their mission to Praesitlyn, Anakin Skywalker and Nejaa Halcyon exchanged sparring tips in a holographic jungle environment.

Changing rooms

Along with each training chamber, a set of lockers and changing areas were installed, so that a Jedi would not have to walk around the Temple in used and soiled tunics. The sparring outfit could be deposited in a laundry chute that would pass through a series of sensors and into the Temple's basement. Temple Caretakers would take care of cleaning and returning the tunics from there. Training lightsabers were also kept on a rack within the locker rooms.

During a string of robberies the training chambers were vandalized and the training lightsabers stolen. Tunics were strewn around, ripped and torn, while a message mocking Yoda was written in one of the locker rooms. Qui-Gon Jinn and Tahl quickly discovered the culprit and the rooms were restored.

Reconstruction

With the destruction of the Jedi Temple, the dueling chambers were damaged with blasterfire, as the knights who once used them were exterminated. The rooms would lie vacant and unused for several decades, until rebuilt in the new Jedi Temple.

During the Second Galactic Civil War, Jacen Solo instructed his cousin, Ben Skywalker to visit the exercise changing room connected with the fourth level training room. In one of the lockers would be supplies for a mission to be conducted in secret.
