The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Tadarok Shrine Puzzle is one of the more confusing ones in the game. Not only is it difficult to find, but you’ll need to use your abilities to work your way through the Fire and Water puzzles. Here’s a look at how to complete the Tadarok Shrine puzzle.
How to solve the Tadarok Shrine Puzzle in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Tadarok Shrine is found in the Great Plateau region. It’s located near the River of the Dead and is hidden behind a waterfall.
The Tadarok Shrine is located in the Great Plateau region.
As you make your way to the location marked on the map above, you’ll see a big waterfall that feeds into a massive body of water called the River of the Dead. You’ll need to climb up to the top of the mountain, and then jump off with your paraglider.
Once you’re in the air, glide through the waterfall. At the bottom, you’ll find a ledge that you can land on. After you land, head left and go through the cave until you come across the Tadarok Shrine. Once inside, you’ll need to work your way through the Fire and Water puzzles. Thankfully, they aren’t too difficult.
For the first puzzle, use your Ultrahand ability to lift the cube on your right and place it in the water. Simply jump onto the cube to get across to the other side to avoid being electrocuted.
Place the cube in the water and use it to get across.
Once across, use your Ultrahand to get the cube out of the water and use it to block the flame on your left. This will allow an ice cube to drop down. Be sure to get a full cube, not a partially melted one.
Be sure to get a full ice cube.
Grab the ice cube with your Ultrahand and bring it to the back left corner to get the hidden chest. Use the cube to jump up on the ledge and open the chest for a Mighty Zonaite Shield.
Use the ice cube to get on the ledge and grab the chest.
For the next part of the Tadarok Shrine puzzle, you’ll need to turn to the body of water to the right of the chest. Use your Ultrahand to take the electrified cube out of the water and place it on the ledge above to block the flames.
Now grab the original cube and the ice cube. You’ll want to place the ice cube on top of the original cube and attach them. But, you’ll need to hang it off the right edge a little bit. It should look like this.
Be sure the ice cube is sitting on the right side of the bottom cube so that it fits underneath the ledge.
This will allow you to place the cubes into the water and hop up on the ledge.
Now for the tricky part: Climb up to the ledge and use your Ultrahand ability to lift the two cubes out of the water, and set them on the ledge that you’re standing on. Then, use your Ultrahand again to set the two cubes on the right side edge of the electrified cube that’s blocking the flame. It should look like this.
Make sure that the cubes hang off the right side so that you can Ascend to the top.
This will allow you to use your Ascend ability to get on top of the three cubes and hop onto the ledge. Once there, you can claim your Light of Blessing and will have completed the Tadarok Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
