The Noya Neha Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Minor Test of Strength,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Noya Neha Shrine is located on the far end of Hyrule Castle West, an island in the northern part of Hyrule Field. It is found inside of a cave, the entrance to which is blocked by thorns. Link will have to burn them away with Fire before he can reach the Ancient Shrine. As Link enters the Shrine, he is greeted by its Monk, Noya Neha.[2]

Themes and Navigation

Noya Neha Shrine features a large, central chamber which acts as an arena. When Link enters this chamber, a Guardian Scout II, wielding a Ancient Battle Axe, will rise from the pit below. To reach the Monk's Pedestal}}, Link must defeat the Guardian Scout.

Once the Guardian Scout II has been defeated, the portcullis at the back of the room will open. Link can approach Noya Neha to receive a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial.[3] The Monk then wishes Link well before fading away.[4]

Behind the portcullis is a Treasure Chest containing a Knight's Shield.
