How To Complete Chichim Shrine In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Scour the Ancient prison ruins beneath Gerudo Desert to locate and complete Chichim Shrine.

In the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the Chichim Shrine is among the few shrines that do not have any puzzles inside. These are the unique Rauru’s Blessing shrines that are easy and straightforward.

However, the path to get to the Shrine is a real challenge. You will need to navigate through a maze to get there.

We will now investigate how to reach this shrine and navigate through the maze-like area to get to Chichim Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Chichim Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Chichim Shrine is hidden underground beneath the vast sands of the Gerudo Desert. The only way to reach this shrine is by going through a sinkhole in Palu Wasteland. The exact coordinates of the sinkhole are (-3145, -3062, 0017).

It is to the east of Gerudo Town and Southwest of Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower. As the Gerudo desert is scorching hot during the day and freezing cold at night, we recommend that you obtain Desert Voe and Snowquill armor sets before venturing.

Brewing Elixirs or cooking foods to survive extreme heat or cold is also a good option.

Chichim Shrine Walkthrough

Once you drop down the sinkhole in Palu Wasteland, you will enter Ancient Prison Ruins.

1. From the entrance, go straight until you come across a switch with a lever.

2. Use Ultrahand to turn the lever to the left and open the gate in front of you.

3. Keep going straight until you come across a Gibdo corpse on the ground. Turn right from there to see another Gibdo and a warrior statue pointing with her sword to the right.


Gibdos are impervious to any attacks unless you shock them first with lightning arrows or Riju’s Shock ability.

4. Turn right to follow the direction and locate another switch with a lever.

5. Once again turn the lever to the left with Ultrahand. This will unlock two gates in the area. One to the left and the other one to the right.

6. Drop down from the right door. Crouch to cross the gap in the wall to the right.

7. Turn left from the gap and keep going straight. Turn right at the end to find another Gibdo enemy.

8. Run past the enemy and look in the left corner of the room to find an entrance. Climb the blocks to reach the upper floor.

9. As soon as you set foot on some blocks on the upper floor, they will break, and you will fall. Don’t worry as there is a Bubbul frog in this area. Kill it to obtain a Bubbul Gem.

10. A warrior statue in this area will be pointing forward. Follow her direction to locate a door with two torches on its sides.

11. Chichim Shrine is behind this door, but you can’t reach it. Go near the door and use the Ascend ability to reach the upper cell. There is a treasure chest in this room. Open it to obtain a Gerudo Scimitar.

12. Use Ultrahand to remove the tiles behind the treasure chest. There is a lever beneath those tiles. Pull it with Ultrahand to open a secret door in this cell.

13. Go through this newly opened door to reach Chichim Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Interact with its entrance (-3212, -3005, -0044) to unlock the fast-travel point.

14. As Chichim Shrine belongs to the blessing shrine category, there will be no combat or puzzle challenges inside it. Open the treasure chest to obtain a Mighty Zonaite Spear.

15. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to complete the Chichim shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and obtain a Light of Blessing as a reward.
