Shrine Pedestals are devices in Breath of the Wild related to the uncovering of Shrines in the overworld, and puzzle solving inside the Shrines themselves. Link has to accomplish a task related to the pedestals in order to activate them. The overworld pedestals are usually part of Shrine Quests, and usually glow orange before activation, after which they turn blue. Some pedestals are Sheikah-made, while others are featureless.

Types of Pedestals

Concave

Concave Pedestals require the placement of Ancient Orbs in their middle cavity to activate the pedestals. In cases requiring multiple pedestals and orbs, placing an orb at the wrong pedestal may make it disappear and return to its original location, or simply not activate. They may also be featureless and located at the base of statues or pillars. Concave pedestals are also part of in-shrine puzzles, where they are at ground-level.
