This one-liner displays temperature:

paste <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type) <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp) | column -s $'\t' -t | sed 's/\(.\)..$/.\1Β°C/'

Here are the results on Intel Skylake i-7 6700 HQ:

INT3400 Thermal  20.0Β°C
pch_skylake      91.0Β°C
SEN1             67.0Β°C
B0D4             61.0Β°C
SEN2             60.0Β°C
SEN3             68.0Β°C
SEN4             71.0Β°C
x86_pkg_temp     63.0Β°C

The packages sensors gets it’s information from the kernel /sys/class/... directories. You can get all info there which sensors is massaging to reveal to you.

NOTE: pch_skylake temperature is abnormally high on most machines. A short google search confirms this.
