Discovering the Shrine
Make your way northwest of Zora's Domain to the Upland Zorana. The area on your map has a few trees and this area is littered with Guardians. As the objective suggests, you simply need to defeat all of the Skywatchers here. It will take some effort to beat these guys, so I suggest stocking up on some Ancient Arrows, or at the very least, have some powerful bows with Bomb Arrows. Perfect Guard blocks with your shield are also effective. Once you've defeated them all, the Sato Koda Shrine will appear.
At the top-left of the shrine you will see an orange ball rolling down. You will need to use Cryonis to create some ice blocks, guiding the orange block into the hole at the bottom-right of the shrine. While there are a few ways to go about doing this, you can actually successfully guide the block using a single cryonis block.
If you place a block below the first gap and slightly to the left, the orange ball will drop down, hit the edge of the ice block, and bounce rightward, all the way down into the gate. It will then launch up and land in the circle at the end of the shrine, opening up the gate to the monk.
Just above where the ball end point is, there is a treasure chest that contains a Giant Ancient Core. You can use Cryonis on the back wall and climb up a series of ice blocks to get it.
