Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Ukouh Shrine Location

Before going on to explain the walkthrough of Ukouh Shrine, it would be useful to know exactly where it's located. You will find the Ukouh Shrine near the Temple of Time. Head southwest from the temple and after a while you will notice a structure with a green light spiraling upwards. This will be just exactly what you are looking for. Then go through the hole that is surrounded by the green flame.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Ukouh Shrine Walkthrough

Let's start with the fact that at the beginning of Ukouh Shrine, you will unlock the Ultrahand ability, and the entire shrine functions as a tutorial for this power.

To get the Light of Blessing and to perfectly master this ability you have to solve three puzzles.

At the first puzzle, Link will face a pit, which he definitely can't jump over. So hold down L and select Ultrahand by choosing the right icon with the right analog stick. To use the ability, just hold L again and hover over the platform, which will serve as a bridge.

If the platform lights up green, it means it can be grabbed. Once you have grabbed the platform, then you can hold down R to rotate it so that when it is lowered, it will form a bridge over which Link will walk to the other side.

After solving the first puzzle and mastering the workings of Ultrahand, the next puzzle will no longer be a struggle for you!

The next puzzle is very similar, but requires connecting two platforms to each other. All you have to do is to press A when drawing one platform to the other, and this will give you a longer bridge.

After solving these two, there is a chest waiting for you at the top in the corner. Go up in the same way you solved the previous two puzzles to get the desired loot!

Walking along, you were sure to catch a glimpse of a wooden platform and a hook. You will need them to make a lift that will take you straight to the location of Light of Blessing. First, you need to connect the two items together, so that you can then set them on the metal railing. Then jump quickly onto the platform, which after a while will start sliding towards the altar.

Then interact with the statue, which will give you the Light of Blessing.

And that would be it! If with our help, you've successfully completed your first Shrine in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, stop by to see our other guides:
