To the Kingdom of Hyrule
Begin Crisis at Hyrule Castle
After Link places the Decayed Master Sword in the mysterious light over the altar at the back of the Temple of Time, where it disappears, he hears Zelda's voice telling him that he must find her. The Light Dragon then parts the Cloud Barrier preventing Link from returning to the surface, beginning the quest.
Link then dives all the way to the surface, landing in the Bottomless Pond. From there, he goes to Lookout Landing - a new town built on the Sacred Ground Ruins. Everyone there is shocked at his reappearance, and tells him to meet with Purah, now the town's head, who's been worrying about him and Princess Zelda since they disappeared following the events that happened Beneath Hyrule Castle.
When Link goes to Purah's office, he is met by Josha, who shouts Purah. When she emerges, dishevelled, the ancient Sheikah woman has further adjusted her age and now appears to be in her early twenties. When she pulls herself together, she asks Link what happened. After recapping everything that's happened to him since they last met, Purah tells him about the Upheaval. Believing that the voice Link heard means Zelda must be alive, she sends Link to meet Captain Hoz in the outer, still grounded, parts of Hyrule Castle.
