You can find this shrine in the Gerudo Desert region, which can be reached using the nearby Skyview Tower.

The coordinates are x= -3881, y= -2964, z= 0123. Another name for the shrine is Buried Light.

First Room

Upon entering the Soryotanog shrine, you will come across a door requiring a key to open. Remove a pile of sand nearby to find a fan lying around. You must activate it and use Ultrahand ability to pick it up.

Then, take the fan to the left side of the room, where you will find more piles of sand. Rotate the fan to blow wind on the dune at the far end of the room, near the wall. You will find a chest hidden below containing the door key.

Second Room

I recommend taking the fan with you as you cross the rooms. You must fight the construct enemy as soon as you enter the second room. Next, you must again blow off sand piles in the area to reveal a buried mirror.

The second pile is located in the right corner of the room. Use the fan to blow off the sand on the pile to reveal a path leading to another room. Take the fan and cross to the other side.

Third Room

This room is optional to explore. I will guide you through it to find all the chests in the shrine.

You will once again encounter another construct enemy upon blowing sand piles. You must defeat it and proceed to find Fan Guster.

  1. Place it on the wall’s far side, where you will see a platform above you.
  2. Rotate the fan and place it on the ground so the wind blows upward.
  3. Glide your way up to the platform using the wind thrust.
  4. You will encounter a large fan stuck due to sand complications on it.
  5. You must remove the sand for the fan to move, which will open a door right behind it.
  6. The room behind the door has another chest that contains x10 arrows.
  7. After claiming this, you must return to the second room.

Opening The Last Door

  1. Move your way to the far left side of the room and Ascend to the platform above you.
  2. Glide down to the platform in the fourth room with the construct enemy on it.
  3. Using the Fan Guster, blow off the sand to find a light source nearby.

My Experience With Saryotanog Shrine?

This is all regarding the walkthrough of the Soryotanog shrine. It requires many mechanics revolving around using fans and mirrors to complete the puzzles. Before diving into a puzzling structure to understand its mechanics, I suggest taking your time and proceeding.

Remember, using a fan in the Second room will significantly pave the way for clearing the shrine. Secondly, you must utilize the best weapons to defeat the enemies in the shrine and avoid losing the progress midway.
