The Temple of Chthon (aka, the Temple of the Darkhold)[citation needed] is located on the Chthonic Island. It's a massive temple with eldritch statuary and wall sculptures, which has a stairway that goes deep into the Earth. Deep under the temple is a nether region, between the material world and Chthon's reality. Where the rules of Euclidean geometry and Newtonian Physics no longer apply. The psychopathic supervillian Carnage entered the temple where he temporarily brought Chthon to Earth.
