"The Ancient Columns stand above the southernmost cliff in the Tabantha Frontier. There are several stone columns engraved with reliefs, but adventurers, beware: this area is patrolled by monsters. Toward the rear is an ancient shrine that Princess Zelda investigated over a hundred years ago."

Creating a Champion, page 310

The Ancient Columns are a location in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

The Ancient Columns are located just west of the Tabantha Great Bridge and south of Piper Ridge. The Columns overlook the Tanagar Canyon to the south and east. Link can climb up to the Ancient Columns by first climbing up to the Rayne Highlands to the west.

The area has a pair of Black Moblin that are patrolling the region. There are also some Maraudo Wolves in the region.

There is some deep water in the center of the area with a circle of lilies. If Link drops in the circle, he can get a Korok Seed. At the west side of the area, there is a pillar with a stump on it. Step on it and then race to the yellow circle that appears above the pillar to the southwest. Reach it in time to find another Korok.

Tears of the Kingdom

The Ancient Columns can be found on a higher cliffside, west of the Tabantha Great Bridge, where they overlook the Tanagar Canyon. Link can scale up to the Ancient Columns by climbing up the Rayne Highlands to the west. However, a dangerous Flame Gleeok ca be found at the east end of the highlands, making the Ancient Columns a very dangerous place to be.

A Picture for Tabantha Bridge Stable

Main article: A Picture for Tabantha Bridge Stable

After completing one Regional Phenomena and acquiring the Camera, Link can examine the blank canvas on the wall at the Tabantha Bridge Stable to begin the quest. Link can then travel to the Ancient Columns and between the hours of 4am and 6am, he can take a picture of the Ancient Columns at sunrise. To do so he'll have to face eastward, as the sun is rising, with the columns in the foreground. After returning to the stable he can show the picture to Dabi who will recreate it on the canvas. Dabi will reward Link with a Pony Point, as well as a Hasty Elixir.
