The Shai Yota Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name Shai Yota's Blessing,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Shai Yota Shrine is on the Horon Lagoon in the Lanayru Sea. Initially, the Ancient Shrine is buried and Link can find Kass at the Lagoon. If Link listens to the ancient verse that Kass knows about the Lagoon, the "Master of the Wind" Shrine Quest will begin.[2] To access the Shrine, several cracked rocks have to be destroyed using explosives. After destroying each cracked rock, a large gust of wind will begin blowing where the rock used to be. When all are destroyed, a large gust of wind will blow from a large island in the Lagoon to a smaller island with a Pedestal. If Link uses the Paraglider to glide from the large island onto the Pedestal, the Shrine will rise from beneath the ground on another small island in the Lagoon, completing the Shrine Quest. As Link enters the Shrine, he is greeted by the Shrine's Monk, Shai Yota, who states that merely being able to enter the Shrine is proof of Link's worth.[3]

Themes and Navigation

Shai Yota Shrine features no puzzles, simply a direct path to Shai Yota. Along this path is a Treasure Chest containing a Great Flameblade. As Link approaches Shai Yota, the Monk will give Link a Spirit Orb for reaching the Shrine,[4] and will wish Link well before fading away.[5]
