Columns of Light are colored pillars that appear in Skyward Sword.[1] They allow access to the Hyrule and facilitate navigation while above and below the clouds.

Location and Uses

Because the Hyrule and the Sky are separated by a Cloud Barrier created by Hylia, many Skyloftian are unaware of what lies below the clouds and believe it to be a forsaken and barren place; only a few old records ever mention the land underneath the clouds.[2][3] Each time Link places an Ancient Tablet in the altar within the Statue of the Goddess, a Column of Light of the respective color of both the region and the tablet will appear and make an opening in the Cloud Barrier.[4][5] The pillar, which is visible from anywhere in the Sky, allows Link to go through the Cloud Barrier and reach the Hyrule by dropping off near the column with the aid of his Loftwing.

  2. "Some say that it's an empty, barren place, or even that there's nothing at all down below, but I just have this feeling that they're wrong. Some of Father's old texts talk about a place called the surface. The old tales describe a whole world under there, far more vast than Skyloft! The thing is, no one's ever been down there to see it, and our Loftwings won't fly through the cloud barrier." — Princess Zelda (Skyward Sword HD)

    The world below is a forsaken place, and to reach it you must pierce the cloud barrier below. In living memory, no one has ever done this.
