Breath of the Wild is filled with over 100 Shrines scattered throughout the Overworld. Only the first four shrines on the Great Plateau are required in order to complete the game.

Shrines serve two main functions. Simply arriving at the shrine and putting the Sheikah Slate on the pedestal will unlock the shrine as a teleport spot, which can be traveled to at any time, even when within a shrine or dungeon. The secondary function is to enter the shrine and complete it for a Spirit Orb. Four Spirit Orbs can be turned in to any Goddess Statue for your choice of a heart container or a stamina upgrade. Later in the quest, Link will unlock a sidequest which will allow him the ability to change these choices. Shrines often contain unique treasure that cannot be acquired elsewhere, such as pieces of armor sets, or rare weapons.

If you unlock the teleport point, but save the shrine for later, the inner portion of the icon will show as red on the map. When all treasure chests within the shrine are collected, a treasure chest icon will show next to the shrine’s name on the map when it is selected. Finally, shrines that are not unlocked will show as red in the world, shrines that are unlocked but not completed will show as blue with a red top, and completed shrines show as blue.

Below is a listing (under construction) that will eventually contain every single shrine found within the game. Alternatively, you can use the Interactive Map to show the location of each shrine. Click the shrine’s name on the Interactive Map to open the wiki page and get more details of how to unlock and complete the shrine. Each page below will send you to a page dedicated for the shrine alone. It will have a description of its location, a text guide with screenshots, and a video guide on how to complete the shrine.

    has anyone gotten to the Zora area yet and have unlocked their Shrines warp? I have no idea how to beat it and its driving me nuts, and I’d also really love not to run up the path to it again T^T

  • Craptastic

    Over 100 shrines, compacted into 4 different shrines, which then form to become one super giant shrine!

  • Elliot McAuley

    There are 120 shrines

  • Thortok

    The first 4 shrines are now covered more explicitly and show how the remaining shrines will be covered. More shrines are coming soon, most likely tonight.

  • Thortok

    The next 9 shrines for the Dueling Peaks Tower region have been added.

  • Any chance of shrine quests being added?

  • Matthew

    Near the Tabantha tower you forgot to list the Voo Lota Shrine on this page.

  • Siriusgray

    A list of the shrine quests would be very helpful since players don’t know the name of the shrine when they’re doing the shrine quest for the first time 🙂

  • Thortok

    All Shrines in the Woodland Tower region are mapped on the interactive map and have a wiki mini-walkthrough. After doing Woodland sidequests and seeds, the next region for shrines will be Ridgeland. The order of regions after that will be Hebra, and then Central.

  • Matthew James Court

    Great guide helped me out no end but did note a few head scratching moments, I am not sure if I had overlooked it but there was the Blood Moon Shrine and the additional shrine in kakariko that opens up after completing a few side quests around the town

  • Stian Kvinge

    Voo lota shrine is missing on this list

  • Kari DoRego

    Yeah, I I’m at that one now. Anyone know how to cook the salmon dish?

  • Thortok

    Look it up on the interactive map, and then click the link to go to the wiki. I’ve written mini-walkthroughs for all shrines and shrinequests in the areas I’ve covered, all accessible via the interactive map.

  • Kari DoRego

    Figured it out when I found the kids. However, the interactive map stopped working on mobile, at least t mobile.. for me about a week ago. 🙁

  • Thortok

    The interactive map will sometimes break when someone adds a pin, but does it incorrectly. We usually fix the map pretty quickly.

  • Stian Kvinge

    Salmon Meuniere = Tabantha wheat + goat butter + hearty salmon

  • Thortok

    All Shrines in the Ridgeland Tower region are mapped on the interactive map and have a wiki mini-walkthrough. After doing Ridgeland sidequests and seeds, the next region for shrines will be Hebra. After that, only Central remains!

  • Thortok

    All Shrines are mapped on the interactive map and have a wiki mini-walkthrough!

  • My shrine counter on the load screen says 119 and I have checked and crossed out every shrine on the interactive map. Is the 120th the resurrection shrine or did I miss one? Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thortok

    All 120 are on the map, and that does not count the shrine of resurrection. Make sure you haven’t marked any as completed, if you have, click the ‘show completed’ in the legend.

  • Never mind, I found it, was the one where you place a luminous stone on the pedestal, can’t believe I missed it.😡

  • Julie

    3 of your tower locations say a different number of shrines than the listed shrines beneath the tower title. Ridgeland, tabantha, 7 dueling peaks.

  • Kashii

    Lakna Rokee Shrine is missing from Dueling Peaks region, its one that requires the missing heirloom shrine quest.

  • Nope

    You misspell the name for Shae Katha Shrine in the Lake Tower Region on this page. It is incorrectly spelled as “Shoae Katha” when there should be no “o”.

  • Ella

    Hi! Any ideas on when the missing shrines will be added to is page?
    Thanks!

  • P Zurita

    I am missing ONE shrine and cannot find it. It is so annoying!

  • Thortok

    Use the interactive map, select the shrines layer so the rest don’t bother you, and mark as completed until you find the missing one.

  • P Zurita

    i just found it! It was the Joloo Nah Shrine on the northeast of the Koukot Plateau next to the Wasteland Tower. You had to do the shrine quest “Test of Will”

  • Ella

    Hi there, just wondering what the status on the missing three shrines is? Thanks!

  • Ken McCarthy

    There are three shrines not listed above.
    One in Dueling Peaks: Lakna Rokee shrine (Lakna Rokee’s Blessing)
    One in Ridgeland: Mijah Rokee shrine (Under a Red Moon shrine quest)
    and one in Tabantha: Voo Lota shrine (Recital at Warbler’s Nest shrine quest)
    The site below will help you a little more, with easier to use maps that show you each region separately. Check it out if you are having problem finding 1-3 shrines not listed in Zelda Dungeon’s.

    Ella, I just posted an update for all to see. Check mine above. This link also helps:

  • L.Breed

    Thanks, I counted the shrine listed above 3 times thinking I counted it wrong since I keep getting 117.

  • Mick

    I replay this game over and over, with different goals each time. I’ve noticed on the last replay that anything I’d hidden (chests and Koroks) transfers over to a new game. I can ask it to ‘show completed’ but this isn’t permanent and I can’t hide/show something I’ve already hidden on a former game. I saw a tip about getting rid of cookies and this brought the map back to ‘clean’. Do you know if this will always work, deleting cookies? Or is there a better way that doesn’t also delete my various logins? I still love this game, and since finding the ancient shield I can have a wonderful time murdering Guardians.

  • Yunchieh Wen

    Cool. It helps

  • Migaish (Angel C)

    Thank you so much!!! I had only 1 shrine left to go and couldn’t figure out why!!
