How to complete the Kurakat Shrine in Zelda: TotK

You have to complete Dyeing to Find it quest to enter the Kurakat Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom.

You can start the quest by speaking to the nearby Steward Construct. Now when you begin, you will have a big Stone Block with slits poking out. There will also be slits carved inside the Stone Block.

Next to the Stone Block is a wheel which when turned, will cause the Stone Block to turn as well. Now your objective is to rotate and add plank boards in such a way that the shadow of the Block aligns perfectly with the pattern shown on the opposite of Cliff’s Face.

This can be done by placing a board in the vertical slit which is opposite to the upper Projection. Now you can either set the Stone Block such that the upper stone projection is pointing nearly parallel to the cliff’s surface.

There is a campfire to the left of the Boulder which you can light up using a Flint or Explosive ammunition. This campfire can be used to rest and wait for the right time. You will need to rest here till the morning.

When morning comes, go to the wheel and wait for around 5:55 am. At 5:55 am, the shadows will align. If not, you can fine-tune and adjust the Boulder to match the pattern on the Cliff’s Face.

When the design on the Cliff’s Face is matched, the Kurakat Shrine will appear in Tears of the Kingdom. Now you can jump through the gap and enter the Shrine.

In the Shrine, there is no Puzzle. You will find a chest in front of you which, when opened, contains the Magical Scepter.
