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

Fight in the dark or use the light shield to emerge victorious from Simosiwak Shrine.

Simosiwak Shrine differs from other shrines in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom in that it can only be found and unlocked by completing a side activity. You can only find it by sheer luck or by following our guide.

While Simosiwak Shrine offers a trial in the form of combat, finding it is a whole different story in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. You must pass a dive test to prove worthy of even attempting the shrine.

In this guide, we will thoroughly explain both processes to make obtaining another Light of Blessing easier as a reward.

Simosiwak Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Simosiwak shrine is located on Bravery Island in the North Hyrule Sky Archipelago. Getting to the Island is a challenge in itself. The first thing you need to do is reach the Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower.

Use the tower to get airborne and glide south. Ensure you have additional stamina wheels and that Tulin’s Gust ability is unlocked. If you don’t have these, make a pit stop on the islands that house the Mayam shrine.


If you have unlocked the Mayam shrine, you can use its fast travel point to reach the area.

A ring on the map represents Bravery Island. You need to reach its lowest section to find a steward construct. This is where you can unlock Simosiwak Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Simosiwak Shrine Walkthrough

The first part of the Simosiwak shrine is to unlock it, and the second part involves completing it. To unlock the shrine, you need to complete a diving trial by passing through the rings.

1. Talk to Steward Construct (0228, 2015, 0753) and start the Dive ceremony.

2. There is no timer yet, so take your time passing through the green rings. If you are feeling confident, you can dive through them quickly.

3. Once you reach the pond at the bottom of the trial by passing through all rings, Simosiwak Shrine (0160, 1968, 0758) will unlock automatically.

4. Enter the shrine to start the Hunting Grounds: Lights Out combat trial. You are not allowed to use any weapons, shields, armor, or zonai devices that you own.

5. This challenge has three constructs that you need to defeat. The catch is that the area is pitch dark, and you can’t see anything. Luckily, a light shield is next to a club near the entrance.

6. Take out your shield by pressing the ZL button to illuminate the area. The first construct soldier is to the left of the entrance. It is an easy one that you defeat with a normal stick. Defeat it to obtain its horn and another light shield.

7. Fuse your weapon with a construct horn to create a more powerful weapon. Now, pick up another long stick in the area.

8. The next construct is on a platform to the right. Go towards the right side of the entrance to find a ramp. This will take you to Captain Construct. It will attack you with fireballs using its Magic Rod. Defeat this enemy, but make sure that you don’t get hit, as it will take down a lot of your health.

9. There are three rubies in the area that you can fuse with the long stick to create a fire weapon.

10. Turn left of this area to find the final construct. This one is also easy, and you can defeat it quickly.

11. The door to the altar room will open once you defeat all three constructs. Enter the room and collect a Bright Elixir from the treasure chest.

12. Interact with the statues of Rauru and Sonia at the altar to obtain a Light of Blessing and complete the trial.
