The Eldin Spring is a location that appears in Twilight Princess. It is the home of the Light Spirit known as Eldin. The spring itself is located near the entrance to Kakariko Village. As Link enters the village, the spring is located to the left (Wii). It's one of four springs found within the game, each being significant to the main plot.
This is the second spring that Link encounters within the events of Twilight Princess. Similar to the Faron Spring, Link, in Wolf form, once again meets the Light Spirit of this area, Eldin. He is then tasked with collecting the sixteen Tears of Light located around province. To achieve this, Eldin hands Link the Vessel of Light and marks the location of each Shadow Insect on his map. After collecting all the Tears and completing the Vessel of Light, Link is then automatically teleported to Eldin Spring. Now he can return to his normal form and the light is once again restored to the province. Link is then told that he must clear the evil that lurks within the Goron Mines, the hero's next quest at hand.
