The Sacred Ground Ruins are a location in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Features and Overview

The Sacred Ground Ruins are an ancient site in Hyrule Field south of the Hyrule Castle Town Ruins where Hyrule’s Royal Guards were honored by the Royal Family of Hyrule.[2] At the center of the Sacred Ground Ruins, there is a symbol of a Triforce that bears the crests of Din, Farore, and Nayru in their respective Triforce positions. There is also a Wingcrest in the blank space of the Triforce.

Prior to the second Great Calamity, Zelda and the Champions gathered here to honor Link’s appointment as Zelda’s personal knight.[3][4] Consequently, the Sacred Ground ruins are the site of the Recovered Memory, "Subdued Ceremony", which Link can recall by visiting the Ruins after speaking to Impa and receiving the "Captured Memories" Main Quest.

A Korok can be found by lifting a Rock atop the northeastern pillar of the Sacred Ground Ruins. He will give Link a Korok Seed in return for finding him.[5] In the "EX Treasure: Phantasma" Side Quest exclusive to The Master Trials DLC Pack, a metallic Treasure Chest is added to the Sacred Ground Ruins. It holds the Phantom Armor and is lodged in the ground in the southeastern portion of the Ruins’ pool.
