Tukarok Shrine is one of several shrines that can be found in the Hyrule region in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. This sanctuary challenges entrants how to move a huge ball forward and over many different obstacles.
Read on as we go through the steps on how to solve the Tukarok Shrine challenge in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Location of the Tukarok Shrine
The Tukarok Shrine can be located to the east-southeast of Lookout Landing, and is close to the Stables.
How to solve Tukarok Shrine
Once you enter the Tukarok Shrine, you will immediately see the final goal of the challenge and the statue room on the left side. Keep moving towards the end of the room to reach the next room where the first obstacle is.
For the first obstacle, you will need to bring the big ball and carry it through the lava pool. Use the already built vehicle and hit the ball on top of its platform. Then drive the vehicle close to the edge of the pool and get on it; make sure the arrows shown on the side of the tires are pointing in the direction you are supposed to go. Once you’re ready, hit one of the wheels with your weapon to activate all the wheels and make the vehicle cross the pool.
Once you are on the other side of the pool, remove the ball from the vehicle for now. The next obstacle will require you to get the ball to the highest level of the room. To do this, you need to grab the wheel and attach it to the side of the slab that rides on the side rail, making sure the arrow on the wheel remains pointing forward.
Next, take the long board near the stairs and place its long thin side on the side of the wheel. Then, place the ball on top of the tile. Once everything is ready, hit the wheel with your weapon and it should flip the board like a paddle to work its way through the sloping grates, all the way to the top. Climb up the nearby ladder, then release the ball from the slab to continue to the next obstacle.
For the last obstacle, you will have to carry the ball over a puddle of water using the pre-constructed rafts. Before doing anything, look under the water between the two rafts to find a sunken chest containing a strong Zonaite sword.
To overcome this obstacle, set the long planks on the wheel side of a raft, still with the long thin side touching the wheels, creating two oars on both sides. Then place the ball on the raft and hit the wheel with your weapon to activate them. Your raft must then move through the water to the other side of the pool. Try disabling the wheel once you’re close to the other side to prevent the oars from catching on the shore and capsizing the raft.
Finally, take the ball to the hole near the entrance to open the door to the statues and receive your Blessing Light.
