The Temple of Marimbo is a temple in Marim, Ape Atoll; it is dedicated to the monkey god, Marimbo. Marimbo takes the shape of a giant gorilla, yet he is a shapeshifter. The temple is only accessible during and after Monkey Madness.

Players use the temple for mass melee training without the use of any food or prayer potions. Players teleport or somehow get to the temple with good prayer armour and use Protect from Melee to fight level 167 gorillas. Since a player can keep their hp at a low amount without the risk of dying (if poison is healed) it is possible to lower hp to a small amount and use Dharok's to do massive damage. When their prayer runs low, a player can pray at the altar near the gorilla spawns. The altar confers the advantage of being able to run many prayers at once, such as Incredible Reflexes, Ultimate Strength, Chivalry, or Piety

Since the gorillas occasionally heal, a player can get a good amount of experience from one gorilla. The bearded gorillas near the trapdoor can block players from moving past them, similar to barricades in Soul Wars and Castle Wars, so it's best not to get trapped since a monkey greegree cannot be used during combat. There is also an annoying spider, which can attack players and poison them up to 3 damage each time. They do not need to hit a player to poison them. Going up the stairs behind the altar doesn't make it re-attack but going up any other ladder, going too far south or west will make it attack the player again. The amount of experience gained from here is very high (some of the highest in RuneScape), but the training can be monotonous and the drops from the gorillas are very low in value.

This place is currently quite unused because a player must have started a master quest (Monkey Madness) to get there. Although busy in the evenings (GMT), it is fairly quiet on weekdays between 6:00 and 15:00 (GMT).

This place is similar to the Armoured zombies that become available in the quest Defender of Varrock. There is an altar near the zombies, so the same training strategy can be used. Since armoured zombies have numerous advantages (weaker, less defence, closer to a bank, Salve amulet can be used, better drops), they are the better choice for training. The only drawback is that Defender of Varrock has more difficult to obtain requirements than Monkey Madness.
