Sheh Rata Shrine / Speed of Light – BotW

The Sheh Rata Shrine is one of the less memorable Shrines in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as it’s quite out of the way, but if you’ve done it before you’ll probably remember the annoyance. Here’s how to complete it!


The Sheh Rata Shrine is located just north of the Lanayru Wetlands on a small island in the intersection of the river north of the Wetland Islands. It’s across the road from Zelo Pond and is just east from Crenel Peak; down-river from Thims Bridge.

You’ll need a fire arrow or some other form of fire like a Flameblade or Flint to ignite and destroy the thorns surrounding the Shrine.

Walkthrough of Sheh Rata Shrine

This of one of those Shrines where you can see the whole thing as soon as you enter – the mechanism on the left, the laser in the middle, the crystal on the right, the pool in your way and the exit over yonder. The mechanism on the left will rotate the laser in the center of the room 360°, hitting the Crystal on the right at the end of the cycle and raising the water level. Let’s begin.

The first thing you’ll want to do it walk to the left and move the spinning lever either way or shoot an arrow to the crystal on the right to raise the water level. Next, drop down to the right and open the chest right next to the platform you came down on to find an Opal. Now walk back up!

Now, look to the right at the platform with the Crystal. Use Cryonis to make an Ice Pillar right next to the Crystal Platform making sure not to block the path from the laser and swim over there. Place a remote bomb next to the Crystal but don’t detonate it yet!

Next, swim over to the platform opposite the entrance and get Magnesis ready. Magnesis the metal barrel and move it over to the Sheikah Button which is submerged beneath the water. The barrel will rise up to the surface but it should stay above the button. Swim back over to the mechanism by the entrance, rotate it and quickly swim back over to the platform with the barrel.

Once the laser hits the crystal, the water level will lower and the the barrel will fall on the button, opening the door to the monk. Penultimately, before reaching the monk, observe the chest on the raised platform on the right. To get to this chest, detonate the remote bomb you placed earlier to raise the water level. Now, use Cryonis to make an Ice Pillar on the water and jump up to the chest to find a Giant Boomerang inside! Finally, acquire the Spirit Orb from the Shrine’s Monk!
