The Tah Muhl Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name Passing the Flame,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

The Tah Muhl Shrine is located in a crag in Trilby Valley within the Eldin Canyon. Link can speak to Mayro at Foothill Stable, who is admiring the painting on the wall.[2] He believes that the painting depicts the Stable from a southern direction.[3] This initiates the "A Landscape of a Stable" Shrine Quest.

The Ancient Shrine can be found to the southwest of Foothill Stable. It can be accessed at any time, even if the Shrine Quest has not been activated. As Link enters the Shrine, he is greeted by its Monk, Tah Muhl.[4]

Themes and Navigation

The first room of the Tah Muhl Shrine is a curving passage, with a pair of stationary Torches at the end. The walls in the main room are covered in leafy vines, which can be burned away by using the Fire from the nearby Torches, either by lighting a wooden Weapon or an Arrow. Alternatively, the vines can be ignited with Fire Arrows or a piece of Magic Gear based around Fire. Burning one of the vine patches reveals a small passage into the next room blocked by crates, which are also burned in the process by the vines' Fire.

The second chamber contains a barred cell locked by a door. The Monk's Pedestal sits on an elevated platform opposite to the cell, but is too high to reach. A ramp leading to the Pedestal is suspended by four stacked crates. As with the previous room, these crates can be burned away using the Fire provided by the chamber's two Torches or with a Fire-based Weapon, thereby lowering the ramp. Once approached, Tah Muhl will present Link with a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial.[5] After this, the Monk wishes Link well and fades away.[6]

Four Treasure Chests are also found in the Monk's chamber. The first is concealed in an alcove by vines behind a pair of crates to the right of the Monk's Pedestal, and it can be uncovered by burning them. This Chest contains a Cobble Crusher. The second Treasure Chest sits atop three crates in the corner of the room. Burning these crates will also burn the Chest, revealing an Opal inside.

On the left side of the Monk's Pedestal is a cell with a locked door. A third Treasure Chest sits on a wooden platform inside the cell, containing a Small Key to the door. The Chest can be burned open by burning the vines on the other side that lead to it, thus dropping the Small Key. Link can then carry the Small Key over the bars using the Magnesis Rune. The last Chest inside the cell contains a Ruby.
