Kurakat Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Kurakat Shrine is hidden well in plain sight. This shrine only becomes available once you complete its quest, and it doesn’t appear on the shrine locator either.

To find the Kurakat shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, head northeast of Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower. This area has a goblin camp and a silver Lynel roaming in the vicinity.

Climb a structure and talk to a steward construct at (2401, -0515, 0154) coordinates. This will start the Dyeing to Find It shrine quest.

Kurakat Shrine Walkthrough

The only way to make the Kurakat shrine appear and enter it is by completing the Dyeing to Find It shrine quest. The steward construct will tell you of a shrine that will tell you about Dyeing a white pattern black when the sun appears in the sky.

This is a hint to rotate the massive stone block in the area so that its shadow covers the white pattern on the wall in front of it. However, it is only possible in the early morning.

1. Start a campfire (hit the wooden logs with a fire arrow or any fire weapon) and stay at it until the morning (5 a.m.).

2. Now start rotating the lever to move the massive stone block. It will start casting a shadow on the wall with a strange white structure.

3. Stop when the shadow on the structure starts looking like the one in the picture above. This is vital. If you mess up anything, just rest at the campfire and rotate the structure once more.

4. Pick up a plank and rotate it to match the shape above. Now, place it on the pillar so that its shadow covers the protrusion on the structure.

5. All you need to do is wait for the sun’s movement to do the rest and align the shadow on the white structure.

6. This will complete the puzzle, and the side quest, Dyeing to Find It, will end. Kurakat Shrine will appear near the puzzle.

7. Interact with the shrine’s entrance to unlock a fast travel point. As Kurakat is a blessing shrine in Zelda: tears of the Kingdom, there are no challenges or puzzles inside it.

8. Open the treasure chest inside the shrine to obtain a Magic Scepter.

9. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to complete the shrine and earn a Light of Blessing as a reward. You can exchange four Lights of Blessing at any Goddess statue to either increase your stamina or health.
