The Face Shrine region is a location found on Koholint Island in Link's Awakening. It is the resting place of both Face Shrine the dungeon and Southern Face Shrine the mini-dungeon.

The area is rather large, situated south of the Rapids Ride area, north of Animal Village and Yarna Desert, and to the east of Ukuku Prairie. It is known for its plethora of Armos statues; other than them and other enemies, there are no inhabitants. It contains many pillars, and the Bow is required to make it through the whole area, because it is the only weapon that works the Armos Knight.
