The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The Gerudo Canyon Crystal Shrine Quest

Jarrod Garripoli

You will run into a number of Shrines in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which are important, as they give you items that allow you to increase your maximum health and stamina. While there are a large number of Shrines in the game, 152 to be exact, not all of them will be available for you to go inside right away. That’s because some of the Shrines are missing a core part of them and you’ll have to find their crystal first. This page will focus on the Rakakudaj Shrine, which requires you to complete The Gerudo Canyon Crystal shrine quest first.

The Gerudo Canyon Crystal shrine quest will allow you to complete the Rakakudaj Shrine.

Where to Find Rakakudaj Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom

As the name of the Shrine Quest alludes to, the "Rakakudaj Shrine" iconRakakudaj Shrine is found in the Gerudo Canyon area of the map. Specifically, it’s just east of the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower, which is just outside of the Gerudo Desert in the southwest corner of the map. If you head directly east from the tower, you will be in a wide-open area, and to the north will be a river. Follow the river north and you will run into the shrine.

How to Complete The Gerudo Canyon Crystal Shrine Quest

Since there is a beam that points to the location of the crystal, you only have to follow it, but it’s possible you might have run into the crystal first. If that’s the case, then you won’t have the beam to guide you. You will find the crystal for the Rakakudaj Shrine to the south of it, in that wide open area mentioned above. It will be slightly hidden, though, behind some rocks and other debris in the area. It’s fairly close to a NPC named Giro, who is someone that’s part of the Disaster in Gerudo Canyon side quest.

(1 of 5) The crystal is found south of the shrine, among some rocks and debris.

Once you have the crystal, you’ll need to find a way to transport it to the shrine. Walking with it is always an option, but it’s a fairly long walk and you have the threat of the river to your side (even though it’s not really deep or anything). Thankfully, some of the debris found in the area is useful, with there being some Big Wheels attached to some stone slabs just north of the crystal. You can attach the slab with the Steering Stick on it, to the other one, to create a bigger vehicle. With that, you can then put the crystal on your makeshift vehicle and use it to easily drive to the shrine.

Naturally, since this is a side quest-related shrine, once you are inside, you will find a chest right ahead ("Mighty Zonaite Longsword" iconMighty Zonaite Longsword) and just the altar, with the "Light of Blessing" iconLight of Blessing.
