As if it wasn’t tough enough to find all of the Shrines in Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the sequel put a bunch in the sky as well. In this The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom guide, we’re breaking down the Sky Shrines that can be found in the central and eastern parts of this vast world.
Please note that the hyphens on the map below do denote other Sky Shrines that can be found in the game but that those particular Shrines won’t be covered in this guide. To learn more about those ones, check out our Hebra Sky and opening journey guides for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

All Central and Eastern Sky Shrine Locations in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (So Far…)
1. Kadaunar Shrine (Water Makes A Way)
Note the water spout to the right that keeps making platforms. What you want to do here is keep removing the platforms and attaching them together until you can cross. Now use either a bomb arrow or a heavy-duty rock-breaking weapon to smash through to the next area. Finally, bring the bridge you made through and drop it on the other side of the lava flow. Now, hop on and use Recall to get you to the end.
2. Jirutagumac Shrine (A Flying Device)
At the start, you just need to grab one of the planes and place it on the track before jumping on. If you miss your chance, use Recall and try again. This, along with a bit of balancing with Link, will get you to the next section.
In the second area, you’ll notice another winged contraption, a fan, and two or three separate wheeled platforms falling off on the other side. You need to cobble them together so that they become a makeshift plane with the fan at the back. Check the picture above to see how we built ours.
Now, you need to ride that thing as far as you can by balancing Link as it flies to get the maximum range. The good news is that, even if you don’t quite make it, you can Ascend through the roof and finish the Shrine that way.
3. Mayanas Shrine (The Ice Guides You)
To unlock this Shrine, you’ll first have to touch the Shrine pad on the bottom left-hand side of the island. This will point you to where the crystal you need is. Now head north and look for a flying device. Hop on and steer toward the glow, and it should have just enough juice to get you there.
Next, shoot two fire arrows at the branches to burn them away and access the crystal. From here, you can either build a contraption to get the crystal back or simply walk it to the edge and chuck it off, which will allow you to carry it there (this is the option we opted for, as the above picture shows).
In the Shrine, you want to use the ice emitters to make sheets of ice which you can then slide down the slope and across the spikes with Ultrahand to hit the moving target. Don’t worry; you can try as many times as you need to hit the target. That’s it, Shrine complete.
4. Sihajog Shrine (Rauru’s Blessing)
To start this Shrine, go to the place where the star is marked on the map. Here, a robot will have you do a skydiving minigame. Doing it once will unlock this Shrine, provided you succeed. Now just walk on into the Shrine and claim your prize. If you don’t see the robot, you’re likely at the island directly above where you need to be, and you need to glide to the one below, which has a lake.
5. Taunhiy Shrine (Combat Training: Archery)
This one is pretty straightforward. You just need to glide on the air flows and then use your archery in mid-air to slow down time and shoot the targets. If you’ve played the first game at all, this is a breeze.
6. Mayam Shrine (Rauru’s Blessing)
This is another collect the crystal Shrine. In this case, glide to where the light is pointing after activating the Shrine. You’ll have to battle a Flux Construct when you get there. Strike the glowing square to harm it. Once it’s dead, pick up the crystal with Ultrahand and bring it to the floating platform that has the rocket mounted on it at the start of this area.
Grab a few more rockets but don’t attach them. Just place them on the platform. Strike the one in the middle that’s already attached and let it burn up. Now attach another in the same way and watch where you’re going in the distance. Strike it to turn it off just before it dissipates.
Now, detach it and attach another that is pointed to propel you horizontally toward the island. When it runs out, you should be just over the island, where you can easily use Ultrahand to drop the crystal down. If you miss, try quickly using Recall to take another stab at dropping it where you need it.
If it’s too late for that, just fast-travel to the Shrine and repeat the process. This will reload the platforms and rockets for you but, unfortunately, will also rebuild the Flux Construct, which you’ll need to kill again.
7. Josiu Shrine (Rauru’s Blessing)
For this one, you have to use the nearby device to rotate a floating platform that will help you to shepherd the crystal across the way. For starters, use Ultrahand to maneuver it so that it creates a bridge that connects the far island and the one to the left. Now, glide under to the place where the crystal is and Ascend to get up there.
Carry it across the bridge to the side island and set it down. Now, climb up and make your way back to the starting point. From here, just rotate it so that the side island connects to the Shrine island and carry it across to where it needs to be. Luckily, this will also complete the unlocked Shrine for you.
8. Igoshon Shrine (Orbs of Water)
At the start, just walk into the orb of water and allow it to carry you to the next level. Next, you’ll see another water orb coming down on the right-hand side. Use Recall on it and hop in to get to the next level. From here, just let the next orb take you across to where you can dash out of the orb to the following section.
Now, for the final area, you need to grab the sliding block and pull it into the middle. Next, grab the metal platform and set it up like a ramp until you can see that the orbs of water will carry you to the end. Once you’ve got it, run behind the next one and jump into it as it’s crossing. It can take some experimentation, but you’ll get it after a couple of tries.
9. Mayasiar Shrine (Rauru’s Blessing)
This is the one that looks kind of like the Death Star. You’ll need to launch from Gerudo Highlands Tower to get close enough to it before you’ll find a robot firing at you. Kill it, and bring two rockets with you. Now, attach one rocket to the platform it was on facing up to get you high enough and leave the other to the side.
Next, attach the other one so that it will take you Northwest toward the Shrine. From here, you’ll be able to climb and glide through the opening on top of the structure. Unfortunately, it’s not over yet. This mirror puzzle looks pretty daunting, but if you follow the logic, it isn’t so bad.
Start with the middle one and rotate it so that the light hits the east mirror on ground level. That mirror will send the light to the ceiling, where it will reflect another mirror on the other side. You have to use the air currents to glide up there and change that mirror so that it aims across the way and hits another mirror. Finally, this mirror will reflect the light down to a mirror behind the first one, in the middle. When you’re done, it will look like the picture above and will allow you entry to the Shrine, which is already complete.
