Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

Ancient Hylian Ruins are decrepit, typically small structures made of a light stone. They are considered Hylian cultural relics and were in ruins far before the Great Calamity. Some speculate that such ruins may have been built at a similar time to the sacred springs.[1]

Pillars within Ancient Hylian Ruins are often fluted, and floors have a distinct geometric pattern. Most ruins are located within the Hebra and Akkala Regions, though some are also found within Central Hyrule and Lanayru.
