The Yah Rin Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Weighty Decision,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Yah Rin Shrine is located on the northwestern outskirts of Lurelin Village in East Necluda. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by the Shrine's Monk, Yah Rin.[2]

Themes and Navigation

Inside Yah Rin Shrine, are a series of scales, which must be weighted down with metallic objects found inside the Ancient Shrine in order to raise Link to higher points within the Shrine. In order for Link to reach the Monk, he must traverse the weighted puzzles and approach the pagoda where Yah Rin waits. Upon approaching Yah Rin, he will give Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial.[3] Afterwards, Yah Rin will wish Link well before fading away.[4]

Behind a gate in the first chamber of Yah Rin Shrine is a metallic Treasure Chest which holds a Knight's Broadsword. A second, stone Treasure Chest in the room with two scales holds an Opal.
