The Closed Door
After Link tries to open the door that leads to the Tears of the Kingdom, he will be unable to do so, but he is then confronted by Rauru. Link's arm is not powerful enough to open the doors and Rauru tasks him with visiting the different shrines on the island to regain strength.
After completing the first three shrines on the Great Sky Island, Link is able to return to the door of the Temple of Time, where he can now open it.
|When you tried to open the door to the Temple of Time, Rauru appeared and said he was the original owner of your new arm.|
He also said you need to revitalize the arm so the power of its touch will open the door. To do that, visit the island's shrines. A green light spirals above each of them.
|Rauru appeared after you visited the three shrines. He said that you've revitalized enough power in your new arm to enter the Temple of Time.|
The door will now open at the touch of your hand.
|After visiting the three shrines, you returned to the Temple of Time. Its door opened to your touch, no longer denying you entry. Somehow, your new arm was truly revitalized enough in those shrines.|
