Features and Overview

The East Gerudo Ruins are located in the Gerudo Desert. The East Gerudo Ruins are the ruins of a temple near the entrance to Gerudo Desert.[3] The temple is a circle of giant statues of the seven heroines who once protected the region of Gerudo.[4]

Breath of the Wild

Link must solve a puzzle here in the Shrine Quest, "The Seven Heroines", given by Rotana. There is a Korok hidden in a balloon between the arms of one of the statues and another Korok hidden under a rock atop the southernmost statue.

Tears of the Kingdom

In the time between the Calamity's defeat and the Upheaval, the Ruins have become filled with sand, with several of the statues no longer being visible.

    • The trim on the the statues of the Seven Heroines translates to "The Seven Sages," referencing the Sages seen throughout The Legend of Zelda series.[5]
