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

Entrance to the Shrine

The Qukah Nata Shrine is located atop a hill on the southeast edge of Calora Lake in West Necluda. To access it, Link can use the Zora Armor to quickly ascend the nearby Waterfall. The Ancient Shrine is initially hidden within a Giant Mound, and the area surrounding Calora Lake will constantly be under the effect of a Thunderstorm.

Kass can be found on the shore of Calora Lake, playing his bandoleon. When spoken to, he will sing an "Ancient Song" from the area for Link,[2] which hints that Lightning should be called down from sky.[3] This begins the Shrine Quest "A Song of Storms".

In order to break the Giant Mound encasing the Ancient Shrine, it must be struck with Lightning. Link can cause this to happen either by equipping a metal Weapon and getting struck while on top of the Mound or by leaving a metal object to get struck by Lightning on top of it. A direct Lightning strike to the Giant Mound will cause it to shatter, revealing the Qukah Nata Shrine.[4]

As Link enters Qukah Nata Shrine, he will be greeted by its Monk, Qukah Nata, who states that he has already proven himself by arriving.[5]

Themes and Navigation

The interior of Qukah Nata Shrine features no Trial, just a straight path to Qukah Nata's Monk's Pedestal. Along this path is a Treasure Chest containing Rubber Tights. When Link approaches the Monk, he will be granted a Spirit Orb for arriving at the Ancient Shrine.[6] Qukah Nata wishes Link well before fading away.[7]

After completing this Ancient Shrine, the Thunderstorm surrounding Calora Lake will subside.
