The gardens of the temple, though overgrown or perhaps because of it, were not happy with your presence and a short battle with the local flora ensued. The fey trees put up a struggle, but in the end they were chopped down like so much firewood.
In the basement of the temple you found the trials of Meharma, a massive set of scales with a set of dynamic, shifting, musical weights. In the process of balancing the scales you tore off one arm, then the other so that you could force the arms level. This allowed you access to the treasure but also woke up its dismembered guardians.
The shattered golems are closing in on you now. They are in pieces but are slowly assembling themselves and getting stronger as they do.
