The Ketoh Wawai Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name Ketoh Wawai's Blessing,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Ketoh Wawai Shrine is located in the northeast corner of the Thyphlo Ruins. When Link first enters the Ruins, he will hear the voice of the Monk Ketoh Wawai telling him to come find the Ancient Shrine within the darkness.[2] This initiates the "Shrouded Shrine" Shrine Quest.

At the western entrance to the Thyphlo Ruins, Link can find a Torch near a bird-shaped Torch. By following the bird Torches, Link will eventually come across a Blue Hinox with an Ancient Orb hanging around his neck. The Ancient Orb must be obtained so it can be placed in the nearby Pedestal with a Concave Slot, unearthing Ketoh Wawai Shrine.[3]

As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, Ketoh Wawai will greet him, saying he has already proven himself by arriving.[4]

Themes and Navigation

Ketoh Wawai Shrine features no puzzles, only a straight path to the Monk's Pedestal bearing Ketoh Wawai. Along this path is a Treasure Chest containing an Ancient Core. When Link approaches Ketoh Wawai, he will be gifted a Spirit Orb.[5] The Monk then wishes Link well before fading away.[6]
