"Kini-Nui? We came all away across the island just to wind up here?"
"Why not? It's a special place."
Takua and Jaller, BIONICLE: Mask of Light


Kini-Nui was a temple in the center of Mata Nui and considered to be the most sacred spot on the island. This was somewhat ironic, because Mangaia, the very lair of their enemy (Teridax) lay directly beneath it, and could be accessed by a large tunnel. It was here that the Chronicler and his party defended the exit for the Toa Mata when they confronted Teridax. It was also the place where the Toa meditated, the Matoran were rebuilt, the Rahkshi came to the surface and were defeated, Jaller died for the first time, and the Matoran Takua became the Toa of Light, Takanuva. It is the replacement for the lost Great Temple in Metru Nui when the Toa Metru brought them to Mata Nui. It was were Gali witnessed the seventh spirit star coming into existence.
