The temporal fossa localizes on the skull's lateral surface and is bordered by the superior temporal line from above and be the zygomatic arch – from below. Inferiorly fossa communicates with the infratemporal fossa. Another connection is a tiny zygomatic canal for the zygomatic nerve. An entrance to this canal from the temporal fossa is the foramen zygomatioctemporale.
