Among all the shrines in Zelda: TotK, the Suariwak Shrine is one of the more difficult ones to find and complete. The only way to locate this shrine is through the Shrine Sensor on Purah Slate. Accessing the Suariwak shrine in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is another story as it has a couple of difficult prerequisites.
Suariwak Shrine can only be accessed after completing “The Yiga Clan Exam” side quest, which requires Link to find and equip all 3 three pieces of Yiga Clan Armor set in order to start it.
To complete the Yiga Clan Exam, Link needs to find and activate the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower, otherwise, it will turn into a massive chore.
Where to find the Suariwak Shrine in Zelda: TotK
Suariwak Shrine is hidden behind Yiga Blademaster’s Station in Gerudo region, and is guarded by the Yiga Blademaster himself. The location of the Yiga Blademaster Station is marked on the map, and it is to the North of Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower and East of Taafei Hill.
The door to the Yiga Blademaster Station is marked by two frog statues and is behind a waterfall, in a hallway carved between two rocks. Its coordinates on the map are -2425, -1824, 0147.
The only way to access the Suariwak shrine is to complete the trial offered by the Yiga Blademaster. Link must equip the Yiga Clan Armor set before approaching the station door or he won’t be allowed in at all. Talk to Yiga Clan Blademaster and he will offer Link “The Yiga Clan Exam” side quest.
