Location of the Ihen-a Shrine in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Ihen-a Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be found in Mipha Court atop Ploymus Mountain, west of Tal Tal Peak, east of Zora’s Domain, and north of East Reservoir Lake. The precise coordinates of the shrine are (3784, 0579, 0485).

We have also marked its exact location on the map below:

Getting to Mipha Court can be tricky as it is literally on top of Ploymus Mountain. For us, we found the easiest way to get there was to start at Upland Zorana Skyview Tower. Then, we stayed as high as we could following the route marked on the following map:

If you take the same route, you should see torches along the path once you get close to Mipha Court.

Now, once you get there, you will find that the entrance to Ihen-a Shrine is covered in mud. To fix this, we attach a Splash Fruit to an arrow and shoot it at the entrance to remove the sticky substance. Then, we enter normally.

Solution of the Ihen-a Shrine puzzle in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

To solve the Ihen-a Shrine puzzle in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you must manipulate several floating platforms to create bridges and steps to get to where you need to go.

When you first enter the Sanctuary, you will see a pair of floating platforms. The quick way to solve this first step is to use Ultrahand to move one of the floating platforms so that it floats in the air near the raised section at the back of this area. Then, stand under the platform and use Ascend to get on it and simply jump to the start of the next area.

However, if you want to spend more time building, you can do what we did and use Ultrahand to perform a series of steps.

Once you’re in the next area, follow the path until you see a single platform in the middle of the floor. Press this to turn it on and then look to your right. Take the metal panel here and attach it to the top of the floating platform so it’s flat. Then move your creation into the space between where you are standing and the other side.

This will form a bridge, and all you need to do is jump over it to cross to the other side. Once you’re on the other side, there are again a few options you can choose from to move on to the next section.

You can take your creation from before and lift it above the second space that should now be in front of you, while making sure that part of it hovers over you. You can then use Ascend to get on and glide to the elevated area.

Alternatively, you can pick up your creation using Ultrahand and then move it to the space between you and the raised area. Then, rotate the creation so that it tilts and becomes a ramp. You can then run up this ramp and jump to the next area.

Once here, follow the path to the next area. You should see a few more floating platforms here. Walk further into the room and then look left, towards the closed door in front of you and across a huge space.

Then, look up and to your left. You should see a ledge up here with a chest on it. The easiest way to get to this is to move one of the floating platforms using Ultrahand so that it floats next to the ledge. Then, simply use Ascend to climb to the top of the platform and jump to open the chest. The chest contains five arrows.

Once you’re ready, gently slide down. Now, you need to match three of the floating platforms in a straight line and insert them into the small space in front of the large golden square next to the ball in the middle of the room.

Next, take the ball and place it on the center platform of your creation. Make sure it’s in the middle of the platform, or it might fall off when the platforms move.

When you’re happy with the ball’s placement, hit the gold structure next to where you placed the platforms and watch them launch across space. They should take the ball with them.

Now it’s your turn to cross the gap. Place the fourth platform in this area in the same spot where you previously placed the trio. Then, stand on top of the platform and turn to face the golden structure. Shoot this with an arrow and you will be propelled through space.

Once here, if the ball hasn’t already landed inside the circle on the ground, pick it up and move it here. When the ball is in the hole, the door to the Light of Blessing will open.
