Kadaunar Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the only shrine of South Eldin Sky, and it teaches players how to traverse lava-ridden areas. While this shrine is a bit difficult to access, solving it is much more fun.

In this guide we will help you locate Kadaunar Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and explain how you can use water on lava beds to create walkable lava slabs.

Kadaunar Shrine Walkthrough

The puzzle of Kadaunar Shrine is known as Water Makes a Way. This puzzle can only be solved by using zonai hydrants to cool down lava and create solid platforms by freezing it.

1. There is a hydrant to the left of the shrine’s entrance. Hit it with any weapon to activate it and then pick it up.

2. Take it near the lava bed and spray water on it to create a lava slab.

3. Keep carrying the hydrant and create lava slabs to move to the next section.

4. Pick up one lava slab with Ultrahand. Take it to the right, where there is a breakable wall.

5. Fuse the slab into a weapon to create a makeshift hammer. Use that hammer to break the wall (you can also use bomb arrows for this purpose).

6. Pick up the remaining slabs and attach them to craft a long raft.


You can always create more lava slabs by throwing water in the lava bed with a hydrant.

7. Place the slab to the left of this room like a plank to reach the platform.

8. There is a treasure chest here. Open it to obtain a Strong Construct Bow.

9. Take the lava slab plank through the wall you broke earlier and place it as a ledge on the bridge (lowered into the lava bed).

10. Pick up another hydrant and use it to create more lava slabs. Use those slabs to move forward and reach the altar room.

11. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to finish the trial and earn a Light of Blessing as a reward.
