Mayatat Shrine Walkthrough

Once you enter the Mayatat Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you will have to complete the puzzle known as A Sliding Device. The objective of this puzzle is to use sleds to traverse across quicksand safely.

1. From the start of the shrine, turn left to notice an arena full of sand. You will see 4 sleds running across the sand periodically.

2. Go near them and use the Recall ability on any one of them.

3. Stand on that sled so that it can take you to the next area. Drop down from the sled and turn left to locate the next area from where you can see the altar room.

4. In this area, pick up a steering stick from the left and attach it to one of the sleds with Ultrahand for better control.

5. Pick up a zonai fan and attach it to the sled, too. Be very careful, as this area is full of quicksand, and you may end up drowning in it.

6. You can now easily traverse across the quicksand with the help of a newly made boat.

7. Go left to find some stairs leading to a treasure chest. Open the treasure chest to obtain 10x Arrows.

8. Glide from there to reach a platform in front. Use the materials present on the platform to craft a new sled boat.

9. Use this boat to go straight. Look to the left to find the altar room. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to complete the puzzle of the Mayatat shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and earn a Light of Blessing as a reward.


You can use the four Lights of Blessing at any goddess statue to either increase your stamina or health.
