The Ancient Columns are a location in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Features and Overview

The Ancient Columns are located in the Tabantha Frontier. Dozens of ruined stone columns litter the area. Some columns still stand tall but many have fallen. The area is also home to Tena Ko'sah Shrine. There is a small pond in the center of the area.

Prior to the second Great Calamity, Zelda investigates the Shrine with the Sheikah Slate but is unable to enter.[2] Link follows close behind in an effort to protect the Princess, who resents that the King has ordered Link to protect her.[3] This event can be recalled in a Recovered Memory, Zelda's Resentment, which Link can recall by visiting the area after speaking with Impa and receiving the Captured Memories Main Quest.

A Korok can be found in the small pond.
