Zelda: Breath of the Wild Shrines Locations Guide

Shrines of Trials in BotW are dungeon-like puzzles. There are over a hundred Shrines of Trials in the game.

As you continue to activate the Sheikah Towers, you will continue to uncover new and exciting challenges.

Inside these Shrines, there are monks who are basically the creators behind the puzzles and obstacles found in these dungeons.

If you manage to reach these monks, they’ll reward you with a Spirit Orb.

Great Plateau Shrines

Shrine Oman Au
Location: North of the Resurrection Tower

After entering the shrine, place the Sheikah Slate on the pedestal on the left side to get the Magnesis Rune. Now use the Magnesis Rune to displace the metal pieces in the room’s center and head up the stairs into another room.

Once again, use the Magnesis Rune to remove the metallic stones and find a new path. There’s a Mini Guardian in the next section so head in prepared.

Finish things up, and cross the metal slab to reach the next platform and use the Magnesis Rune to build a new path ahead.

There’s also a metallic chest on the left side which you can bring to you using the Magnesis Rune. Next up, pull the metallic door open and speak with the monk Oman Au to get a Spirit Orb.

Shrine Ja Baij
Location: South of Resurrection Tower in the Eastern Abbey Ruins

After entering the shrine, place the Sheikah Slate on the pedestal on the left side to get the Remote Bombs. Spherical bombs are better for rolling down slopes and Square Bombs are better for more precise hits.

Once done, break the wall and head to the hallway. There’s another breakable wall on the right side with a Traveler’s Sword behind it.

Head back and destroy two rocks to reveal a ladder. In the next area, place a Square Bomb at the end of the rotating platform.

In the next large area, head to the platform near the first funnel and place a Spherical Bomb in the funnel.

This should allow you to reveal another ladder. The ladder should take you to the monk Ja Baij and the next Spirit Orb.

Before going forward, you should be able to see another couple of blocks that extend and retract. If you stand on the farthest one, you should be launched to a chest containing Amber.

Shrine Keh Numut
Location: At the top of the Mount Hylia, South of the Hylia River

After entering the shrine, use your Sheikah Slate on the left side pedestal to get the Cryonis Rune that allows you to create icy blocks and platforms from water. Once you have it, use the rune to create a pillar and get to the next area by grabbing the ledge.

In the next area, use the rune directly underneath the gate to force pry it open. On the other side of the gate, you’ll be greeted by a Mini Guardian.

Use ranged attacks and perhaps your new icy moves to give yourself some makeshift cover.

Once you’re in the final area, create ice pillars on both sides of the raised platform to access the upper area.

Once you’re up, don’t head to the monk straight away, instead look for a treasure chest in an alcove. Once done, get the Spirit Orb from the monk.

Shrine Owa Daim
Location: Southeastern side of the Mount Hylia, Southern edge of the Great Plateau

Once again, the first thing that you need to do is to use your Sheikah Slate on the left side pedestal to get the Stasis Rune that allows you to freeze time and build up the momentum of certain objects.

When the platform is straight, use the Stasis Rune on the large gear on the left side to get into the next area.

However, you need to be extra careful while doing so because of incoming boulders that can kill you. Wait for one to pass and use the rune on the next one.

This should allow you to head into the next section. There’s also a treasure chest on a higher platform which you should try and get. From the first platform, grab the Iron Sledgehammer and equip it.

Now you need to use the Stasis Rune on the boulder and continue hitting it with the Iron Sledgehammer to build its momentum and reveal a new path.

The path should lead you across the bridge where you’ll get to see the monk Owa Dain and grab the Spirit Orb.

Central Hyrule

Dah Kaso Shrine
Location: Below the Digdogg Suspension Bridge on Southwestern Central Hyrule

The primary objective of this shrine is to destroy the spear wielded by the Guardian Scout. As soon as you see him charging it at you, try to dodge to the sides. I highly suggest dodging to back because of the spear’s range.

If the Guardian steps back and extends, quickly head behind a pillar to avoid taking any damage.

At about 50% HP, the Guardian will add laser attacks into the mix. To avoid this, you need to jump into the air, glide, and aim for the eye in order to stun it.

It’s important that you aim for the eye or you’ll get hit by the attack. Deplete some more HP and the Guardian will turn blue, indicating its last phase.

During the last phase, you basically need to dodge and sprint while dealing damage.

Once done, grab the Guardian Spear, Ancient Core, and the Spirit Orb.

Wahgo Katta Shrine
Location: Southeast of Central Hyrule

Once you’re inside the shrine, make sure to climb the metal crates in order to find an Amber inside a treasure chest.

Stacking the crates won’t let you reach the monk which is why you need to stack them against the opposite platform in order to find a metal slab.

In case you’ve already forgotten, it’s done by using the Magnesis Rune. From there, you should easily be able to build a bridge leading to the monk and get your Spirit Orb.

Kaya Wan Shrine
Location: Eastern Edge of the Central Hyrule, North of Wetland Stable

After entering the shrine, you need to use the Cryonis Rune in order to go past the waterfall. In the next area, you’ll come across a Guardian Scout. You need to hit it in the eye to get rid of it quickly.

In the right side of the platform, you should be able to see a treasure chest in the water which can be accessed with the Cryonis Rune.

The treasure chest contains an Ancient Rune so make sure to get it. In the next area, you’ll come across two Guardian Scouts.

Since it’s not easy to take them down simultaneously, you should try to build a platform and use a powerful bow to snipe them down. Once you’re done, use the Cryonis Rune underneath the gate on the left side to pry it open and get the Knight’s Broadsword.

Now all that remains is to use the wooden shaft in the water to guide it to the end of the waterfall from where you should be able to jump and use the Paraglider to head to the monk Kaya Wan and get the Spirit Orb.

Rota Ooh Shrine
Location: West of the Central Hyrule, directly above the Outskirt Stable

After entering the shrine, use your bow to hit a yellow switch on the right side, over the water. This should allow you to reveal a new path with a sphere. However, before moving on, find a hall near the spear to find the Small Key.

Once you’ve grabbed the sphere, shoot the blue switch and open the gate. After the structure tilts back, toss the sphere into the metal screen, right next to the orange switch. Now hit the switch and open up another path.

While flying, paraglide to a ledge which has a treasure chest containing a Feathered Edge Sword. Once done, check the left side to find a blue switch which should allow you to reach the monk and claim the Spirit Orb.

Update on Shrines

This is where we leave The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild behind us. We’ve quite a fistful of Shrines Locations Guide in our Zelda: Breath of the Wild Guides Archive.

The basic framework behind every shrine in the game remains the same. Solve a fairly easy to understand puzzle, grab the additional loot, head to the monk, and retrieve the Spirit Orb.

Due to this, we’ve decided that it’s not worth the effort to provide guides for all the shrines in the game.
