Monastery Red Tree Temple Puzzle Solutions The greatest reward for a person playing The Witness is solving the puzzles.

Monastery Red Tree Temple Puzzles

In order to open up the doors, you have to mark the panel on the left and then the panel on the right. Go to the back of the room, where you’ll see a table with a little red tree. If you mark the line properly, it will open up the blinds on windows. Look through the model on the window to reveal the solution shape that should be drawn on the panel.

Puzzles inside the temple

Line up the tree branches with the panels. For the first two panels, you have to draw a line that goes around the brunches, and for the last two follow the branches to draw the path. When you line up the branch and the panel for the fourth puzzle, you’ll notice that a small part of the branch is missing. You’ll find it on the floor.

When you solve all the puzzles, go outside to the opposite side of the entrance, and activate the third laser.
