Tears of the Kingdom: How To Solve Tukarok Shrine

Learn how you can solve the Tukarok Shrine Puzzle in Tears of the Kingdom.

Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Tukarok Shrine.
The Tears of the Kingdom Tukarok Shrine is one of the easier Shrines but it requires a lot of craftsmanship. Here's how to find the Tukarok Shrine and its solution.

The Tukarok Shrine is one of the easiest to find as it’s close to Lookout Landing. Start by traveling to Lookout Landing and then going East from here. Cross the Great River, and you will eventually find the Shrine.

If you still can’t find it, look for the Wetland Stable. Check out our Tears of the Kingdom stables guide to learn how to get to the Wetland Stable.

The coordinates for the Tukarok Shrine are 0915, -0250, and 0035.

Key Takeaways

  • The Tukarok Shrine can be found just East of Lookout Landing, close to the Wetland Stable.
  • The Shrine requires you to complete three puzzle rooms; the last room is the way out.
  • In the first room, you must push a steel ball through a lava pit by placing it on a cart and pushing it.
  • The second room requires you to use the Rewind ability to push the ball to the top of an incline and take it to the next room.
  • The third room has a pool of water with four lanes. You must form a raft using the materials available and swim across the room.
  • Then, you must place the ball on a switch to enter the next room and place the sphere into a receptacle. Interact with the statue to get the Light of Blessing.

Lava Room

The puzzles in this Shrine are relatively simple but require you to have a few abilities, such as the Ultrahand and Recall abilities. The puzzles here are divided into three sections.

The first three sections of the puzzle require you to move a giant ball through three rooms, each with its obstacles.

The final part of the puzzle has you placing the ball onto a switch to get through the exit.

You’ll need to navigate the steel ball through a lava-filled room for the first room. Here’s how to clear this room:

  1. Enter the Shrine and travel further until you find a place to jump from.
  2. Jump and look for the giant steel ball.
  3. Next, look for a cart. It should be close by.
  4. Pick up the steel ball with the Ultrahand ability and place it onto the cart.
  5. Find the lava pit and, with Ultrahand’s ability, put the cart (with the steel ball attached to it) in front of the pit.
  6. Orient the cart so that it’s pointing toward the lava pit.
  7. The arrow tread pattern on the tires should point toward the pit. You can re-orient the cart using Ultrahand.
  8. Hop onto the coach and move forward by striking its tires with your sword.
  9. If you do this right, you’ll cross over the lava pit and enter the ramp on the other side.

Incline Room

In this room, you must force the ball up a steep incline. This room has a Zonai Device, but you don’t need to use it. What you need to use is the recall ability of your character. 

  1. Go to the right side of the room and find the giant cube attached to a railing.
  2. Using the Ultrahand ability, place the ball you just pushed into this room on top of the block.
  3. Move the cube (with the steel ball attached) to the very end of the railing.
  4. Let go and let it fall back down.
  5. Now, travel to the very end of the room, where you will find a ladder that enables you to enter the next room.
  6. But you can only go further with the steel ball.
  7. This is where you use the Recall ability. Use Recall to bring the block back up to the top.
  8. Once it stops at the top, remove the ball from the cube and use the Ultrahand ability to grab it and take it to the next room.

Water Room

This last puzzle requires you to navigate through a room filled with water. There is some treasure to be found here as well. Here’s how to get the treasure and solve the puzzle:

  1. Locate the boat with the treasure chest, the second boat from the left, visible from the shore.

  2. Use the Ultrahand ability to grab the treasure chest from the water. Inside, you’ll find a Strong Zonaite Sword.

  3. Find a cart in the same room and attach the steel ball.

  4. Look for two narrow wooden boards and attach them to the sides of the cart, pointing downward and forward. These boards will act as makeshift raft extensions.

  5. Place the large steel ball you’ve been carrying onto the center of the raft.

  6. Use the Ultrahand ability to position the raft facing the large pool of water, where you’ll see four lanes or routes.

  7. Hit the raft’s wheel with your sword to set it in motion. The raft will move forward, allowing you to navigate through one of the routes to reach the other side.

Exiting The Shrine

Now that the Shrine’s puzzle rooms are over, you’ll face the exit. Some work still needs to be done here to open the doorway.

  1. First, grab the boat you made with the Ultrahand ability and place it onto the switch before you. You can also just put the ball here.
  2. This will open up a corridor. Enter it to find a small indent in the ground. This is where you should place the steel ball you’ve been carrying. This will open up the exit.
  3. Interact with the statue in the next room to get the Light of Blessing. And just like that, you’ve completed the Tukarok Shrine.

Is It Worth It?

Yes. Light of Blessing is an important item that’s essential for slightly buffing Link. You get these from completing several Shrine puzzles, including the Tukarok Shrine.

Link can use Light of Blessing to boost his Stamina Wheel or get a Heart Container. You must make an offering at Goddess Statues and must offer four Lights of Blessing for every Heart Container or Stamina Wheel boost.

The Tukarok Shrine is undoubtedly one of the easier Shrine puzzles to solve in Legend of Zelda’s Tears of the Kingdom. However, the fact that it requires the Ultrahand and Recall abilities, along with some craftsmanship, makes it a bit of a challenge initially.
