This article is about the battle during the Second Galactic Civil War. You may be looking for the Invasion of the Jedi Temple.

The Invasion of the New Jedi Temple on Coruscant took place in 40 ABY during the Second Galactic Civil War. After the New Jedi Order withdrew from the war and refused to aid Jacen Solo, the Colonel ordered the Galactic Alliance Guard to seize the Jedi Temple and detain all Jedi located there.

Attempted seizure[]

After the Jedi withdrew from the Galactic Alliance at Kuat, the Jedi that remained on Coruscant prepared to evacuate the temple.

When the GAG stormed the Jedi Temple Main Entrance, the Jedi repulsed the invaders and began to initiate evacuation and abandonment procedures. Jedi Apprentice Seha Dorvald, although a proven traitor and spy for Colonel Solo, destroyed two of the Jedi Archives' databanks after she transferred all data on to a holodisk. She then proceeded to escape with two other Knights through the under levels of the city-planet; leading her companions and the disk to safety.

The rest of the Order managed to escape off planet safely with few casualties. All StealthXs were removed from the hangars by their pilots along with anything else of value. The Temple Caretakers fled with the Jedi, leaving behind their lives and possessions in order to help the fleeing Knights.

The Order would rendezvous at the Jedi Outpost on the Sanctuary Moon of Endor where they would establish temporary training facilities until relocating to a confidential location on Shedu Maad.
