As you explore the sewers in the city, you’re bound to come across the Undercity Ruins in Baldur’s Gate 3, and there you will find Bhaal’s Door. This entrance demands blood, and it’s only the first step to reaching the temple, so I’m here to help you quickly get through before the real challenges begin. Here’s how to open Bhaal’s Door in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How to Open the Temple of Bhaal Door in BG3

To open Bhaal’s Door before the Temple of Bhaal path, you need to shoot the bodies hanging above the platform. If you are facing the door itself, there is a circular platform directly behind you, and when you zoom out, you can see a couple of bodies hanging directly above. These are the keys to gaining instant access.

Use any of the ranged attacks you have access to for blood to start flowing and hit the platform. I used a standard attack on my archer for full accuracy and no cost. Don’t waste your resources unless you have all melee characters and absolutely need to. Once an attack connects and the blood fills the stone platform, the doors will open up.

It’s a super simple solution to the door, and it took me some time to put the pieces together in my head, which is usually the case with Baldur’s Gate 3. But even with this part of the Undercity Ruins opened up, there is far more to complete up ahead.

Once you walk through Bhaal’s Door, you can make your way to the temple. This initial door allows you to reach the next step before the Temple of Bhaal, but it’s not the temple itself. To reach the real Temple and items like Dribbles the Clown’s Head, you must get past the Farslayer and his minions.
