Here, I advise using the Ultrahand to attach one of the hooks to the wooden plank and connect this model to a railing. After joining the model to a bar, jump on the wooden plank to reach the other side. Interact with the green circle to acquire the Light of Blessing.

You will see a treasure chest on the right corner of your back when you reach the other side of the slab. Once again, use Ultrahand to place the wooden plank at a 45º angle and make a bridge to the treasure chest. You will acquire a piece of amber on opening the UKouh chest.

Is It Worth The Effort?

The main aspect that makes the first shrine a must-visit is that players can pick up their Ultrahand ability, which helps them move objects freely and attach them to other subjects. It enables the player to build a significant number of things. 

Players can also improve their aim through their time in the UKouh Shrine. It helps to use Ultrahand more accurately.

At the end of the Shrine, you will get a powerful Light of Blessing that purges ancient evil and purifies with its radiance.
