Why is the Temple of Time so different in Twilight Princess?

For me, one of the biggest disappointments in Twilight Princess was the Temple of Time. After visiting it in Ocarina of time to retrieve the Master Sword, I was expecting big things from a full dungeon in the same location. It did not deliver. They changed the theme, it was very linear, and the boss was terrible, just to name a few. Also, why was it so different from the Temple of Time we see in Ocarina of Time? Well, Youtuber Dr.Wily decided to look into this in his newest theory video.

Some of the things Dr. Wily addresses include the wall decorations, the Medallion of Light appearing in a lot of places, when the 2nd part of the temple was built, how Zant got the Mirror Shard to the Temple, was it a place to test the hero’s skill (much like Tower of the Gods in Wind Waker), and maybe it is actually the Temple of Light.

One item that is particularly interesting is the Chamber of Sages. I find it very strange that if the Temple of Time in Twilight Princess is actually the Temple of Light, then why were we not able to visit this room? It doesn’t make any sense as it would be a great throwback to Ocarina of Time. Even though I disagree with him on this point, he makes many other logical points that show maybe this could be the Temple of Light. What do you think?
