"It's hard to sneak up on a Jedi, you know, especially in the Temple. If you needed to meditate, you only had to ask me to vacate the contemplation balcony…"
―Lene Kostana, to Dooku — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

The contemplation balcony was an exterior platform situated halfway up the Temple Spire, the main spire[1] of the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant. The location was used by members of the Jedi Order for solitary meditation and reflection.[2]

In 88 BBY,[3] Jedi Master Lene Kostana awaited the return of her convor, Ferana, upon the balcony. Shortly thereafter, Kostana and Jedi Initiate Dooku had an altercation on the balcony as Dooku suspected Kostana was secretly a Sith. Jedi Grand Master Yoda broke up the duel after Dooku became too aggressive and helped the Initiate see that he was incorrect in his accusations toward Kostana.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The contemplation balcony appeared in a flashback in Dooku: Jedi Lost, a 2019 audio drama written by Cavan Scott.[2]

  3. According to Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, Updated and Expanded, Dooku was eighty years old at the time of the First Battle of Geonosis. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the battle in 22 BBY, thus dating Dooku's birth to 102 BBY. The script of Dooku: Jedi Lost states that Dooku was fourteen years old when he sneaked into the Bogan Collection, placing the event in 88 BBY. The flashback in which Lene Kostana and Dooku meet on the contemplation balcony takes place the same year. Therefore, this event occurred in 88 BBY as well.
