Central Hyrule is a large area in the center of the map. It stretches from Castle Hyrule on the north to Lake Kolomo in the south. It’s surrounded by Hylia River in the east and Regencia River in the west. It’s a huge area, but there aren’t a lot of shrines.

Central Hyrule Shrine Locations Zelda Breath of the Wild
  1. Kaam Ya’tak Shrine – From the top of Central Tower, paraglide to the southwest and look around the eastern side of Mount Daphnes.
  2. Katah Chuki – Northeast of Mount Gustaf, in the southeastern part of Quarry Ruins
  3. Noya Neha Shrine – On the island north of Quarry Ruins, on the southern slope of a hill in the southwest corner of the island. Find the side overgrown with thorns, burn them away and use a bomb on the breakable rocks and reveal the shrine.
  4. Saas Ko’sah Shrine – In the northern part of Castle Hyrule. You’ll have to go inside and find a large stone brazier and ignite it. To get inside the castle, watch it from the mountain on the northwest. You’ll notice a part of the moat where the water flows into the castle. That’s your point of entry.
  5. Namika Ozz – In the northeast of Central Hyrule, in the center of Crenel Hills. Look inside the huge rocky formation that looks almost like a volcano opening.
  6. Kaya Wan Shrine – Just head a little to the west of Wetland Stables, which are near a wooded area south of Crenel Peak, near the eastern bank of the Hylia River.

Shrines in Zelda BoTW

The shrines we’ve seen so far have all been underground. Their entrances were easy to notice – imagine a cave mouth adorned with glowing, orange runes. You’ll be able to spot them from quite far away, so use any chance you get at higher ground to scout out your surroundings. You can plant map markers on places you deem interesting, in case you don’t want to visit them right away.

Once you reach the shrine, you’ll use your Sheikah slate to gain entrance. The runes will turn blue, and an elevator will appear. Inside, jumping puzzles and challenges await. Many of them include finding inventive ways to use your rune powers. Getting to the end of the shrine is usually not that hard, so you’re pretty much guaranteed a spirit orb. However, there are other treasures inside, and they’ll often require a bit of lateral thinking.

They may include enemies, but the focus is usually not on fighting, but on figuring out a solution to the puzzles inside. They’re all tied by a theme in each shrine, so there isn’t much guessing involved. In case you do get stuck, we’re going to list the shrines and the solutions to their challenges on this page.

Once the game launches, on March 3rd, we’re going to start updating this guide with more info. If you discover a shrine that isn’t here, feel free to share your findings in the comments.

    South west of the Wasteland Tower is a Shrine surrounded by 7 Statues ( you have to find all the balls and put them on the right statues plate, look for the correct symbols on the Balls and statues, one ball in on one of the statues and the rest are scattered around, use Magnesis to find them.)
    Its called the “Korsh O’hu Shrine”.

  2. Fryer

    Also missing Toto Sah shrine in West Necluda. It is near the southern most waterfall at river level behind a bombable wall.

  3. TheKeRL

    The entrance to the To Quomo shrine ( shrine 20 in hebra) is directly south from where you put the number 20 at the mini pond. Little puzzel at the entrance.

  4. asdffg

    Nr20 of hebra is behind a gate just in the middle of north summint, tundra and north crest. I don’t know how to open the gate tho

  5. Jonathan

    20 is called To quomo shrine, go north of hebra north summit downhill till you see two doors roll a snowball into them

  6. aldskhflj

    Hebra Nr9 is part of a quest. Talk to one of the rito women and she will tell you to check on her kid, follow the quest and the 5 kids will sing a song for you in warblers nest. Then blow wind with a korok leaf into the stones in the order of the song (numbers on top of the stones) and the shrine will appear.

  7. aldskhflj

    Hedra nr16: need to wait until 13:00 so that the shadow heart of the rito rock shines on it and make a fire on the platform

  8. iggy

    #20. look south east from the summit and you’ll see tiny water with trees around it. locate the stone doors, go up the slope, create a bridge with 2 ice blocks from your cryonis, then grab a snowball from higher on the slope and you should know what to do

    1. BotW

      Can anyone tell me how I find the shrine near gorko lake/tunnel in eldin south of Death mountain? It’s the only one missing and I just can’t find it. It drives me mad…

      1. yomiura

        Go to Goron village, there is one Goron mentioned about his brother, this will triggers the shrine quest. Go back to the tunnel and it will automatically triggers the sequence.

    2. The Arnett

      Would you be able to share where the 2 that are not on this list are located then? Driving me nuts being this close.

          1. Gosu No0b

            You are missing the first 4 shrines on the Great Plateau – there is a total of 120 on this page.

  9. yomiura

    There are suppose to be 120 shrines in this game but I can count only 118 shrines from your list. Do I misunderstood anything?

  10. MartianYan

    Yesterday in the desert, on the way to yida clan, outside the clan i found a mural but not sure how to make to shrine pop out. It had a stone carving riddle in the front saying to offer a shiny blue stone. Couldn’t figure out what it meant by shiny blue stone. Anyone know the name of this shrine and how to solve it?

    1. yomiura

      I think that’s Sho Dantu Shrine. Just break any ore deposit nearby for a Luminous stone and place it at the pedestal, that should work.

    2. SpringROLZ

      Its a “luminous stone” that you have to place on the allter. They actually give you a hint as to what stone you have to provide because they have breakable ore materials surrounding the glowing pad. I believe they specify shiny only because it glows at night.

  11. darkmafia99

    Umm I’m at 119/120, without having to post them would someone maybe be able to tell me which two are missing on this list 🙁 Thank you 🙂

        1. Gosu No0b

          4 in the starting area
          + 12 west necluda
          + 7 east necluda
          + 9 faron
          + 14 gerudo desert
          + 6 gerudo highlands
          + 8 Hyrule Ridge
          + 20 hebra
          + 5 great hyrule forest
          +10 eldin
          +9 akkala
          +10 lanayru
          +6 central hyrule
          (takes out calculator)
          = 120

  12. Spinto

    There is a shrine you’re missing from the quest “Test of Will” which is west of the digdogg bridge and north of mount nabooru. Zoom in on the area and you’ll see a small circle being touched by ~10 smaller circles. That’s the logcation.

    #20 To Quomo Shrine North Hebra Summit

    If you’re having trouble finding after checking this guide, please keep reading:
    This guide is very helpful, however on some of the more important/easily missable shrines it’s very vague and time wasting. To the makers of this guide, if you don’t have complete/concise information on the location of a shrine, say so. For example: Saying that the shoe store is west of K-mart, versus saying; to get to the shrine first go north of J Street, to the right of the fire hydrant find the path leading to downward to the underground, traverse the labyrinth to find the store which ends up being west of K-mart on your map.

    To relate this to the game, YES To Quomo is “north of Hebra summit” on the goddamn mini map, however you must first go south east of North Hebra Summit (just as it says on the map, and it’s literally just slighlty SE of it on the map), it’s below a cliff SE of North Hebra Summit. You’ll find two large stone doors at the bottom of a small valley in the cliff face. THIS IS THE ENTRANCE! To the writers of this guide, if you’re going to type something as vague as “North of hebra summit”, when in actuality that’s maybe 1/12 of the information needed, don’t type anything at all. Sometimes “too little” information can lead to a waste of time, ie. spending an hour+ traversing the northern cliff face looking for the shrine/entrance. If you’re going to make a guide – then make a guide, don’t post in haste of trying to get content out there before everyone which is incomplete.

  14. Alexia

    The ‘Flown The Coop’ quest won’t activate, the guard just talks about the Yiga clan. I’m way past when you get the tunic, and i’m just getting everything (Except for Korok seeds.. Screw that.) before I head to Hyrule Castle. What am I doing wrong?

  15. Alexia

    Well I take it i’m not getting any help with my problem- But you also forgot to list that for the 6th Gerudo Highlands shrine you need to complete ‘The Test of Ultimate Endurance’. I wasted about 2 hours last night because I thought it was just sitting out in the open.

  16. E-ZombieHERO

    Followed your guide to a “T” and made it to 116 shrines complete before I realized I am missing 4 shrines.

    Two of which I had confirmed are accessible, post Divine Beast battles, but that left me to question if the other two where the same.

    So I took a look at your complete map and realized it was #7 and #20 of Hebra region, xD man are those way out there.

    Also am I the only one to find it odd that only two are post Divine Beast Battles?

    Last note I’d like to mention #11 Tho Kayu Shrine of Gerudo Desert only appears visible under the “M” of Toruma Dunes if the player is viewing the map at 2x zoom.

    I figured lots of people are probably confused and angry about the way you described that, other wise the guide was detailed enough for me to comprehend (despite others crying about details)

    Thank you for the help and good job!

    1. Gosu No0b

      Thank you for your kind words. We were in a big rush to create this guide and it went through dozens of revisions as we were adding more detailed and better descriptions. I think it is in a good state right now, but we’ll go through a couple more to make it perfect)

  17. Riku

    I’ve double checked my map a ton, and the only shrine I haven’t done is the one where you need to get the orb off of Impa- But I’ll still only end up with 119. I’ve gone through and checked every section and made sure I have all the shrines and as far as i can see I do, without having to count. Is there a hidden spirit orb or something?

    1. Alex

      I’m having the same issue I’ve gone back and counted them on my map with this guide and I ended up at 119. I know when you add all these numbers in the guide is 120 but I checked for myself a couple times so idk why I’m missing 1

      1. Gosu No0b

        Did you check the three shrines that are right next to each other in West Necluda? When counting I usually miss one of those three, cause they are so close together.

  18. Skoll

    For Shine 9 on Akkala Shrine Locations you can Just Jump of The Side and use Your Paraglider Once your A good Distance Pull out your Bow and Use bomb Arrows to take down the Rocks.

  19. keith ridley

    I think i figured out a simple solution for getting into the ke’nai shakah shrine. first locate the cracked area jump down from above and float under ridge, use bullet time bomb arrows then go back up using wind current and float inside.

  20. 9k.semi

    I just solved my 119 shrines problem. I also thought this guide missed one.. after checking all the shrines like 10 times compared to this list I concluded I had to have 120 shrines found already. After wanting to checking them out 1 by 1, I read that on the map the middle will show orange in case the orb wasn’t obtained. It’ll be complete orange when you haven’t yet entered. So make sure you have all, you have to hover on all of the shrine icons to check they are all blue.

    Hope this will help some of you..
