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

Entrance to the Shrine

Zuna Kai Shrine is located on the Left Eye of Skull Lake in Deep Akkala. Jerrin at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab will direct Link to Skull Lake's Left Eye after mentioning she has focused a lot of her research on Ancient Shrines.[2] She will then tell Link that it holds an Ancient Shrine, but it will be challenging to reach.[3] This initiates "The Skull's Eye" Shrine Quest.

The Ancient Shrine can be found atop a spire on the eastern island of Skull Lake, which is the Skull's left eye. When Link reaches the top of the spire and activates Zuna Kai Shrine, the Shrine Quest will be completed.[4] As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by its Monk, Zuna Kai, who states that merely being able to enter the Shrine is proof of his worth.[5]

Themes and Navigation

Zuna Kai Shrine features no puzzles, simply a direct path to the Monk's Pedestal. Along this path is a Treasure Chest containing a Flameblade. When Link approaches Zuna Kai, the Monk will give him a Spirit Orb for reaching the Ancient Shrine.[6] After this, Zuna Kai wishes him well and fades away.[7]
