With so many Shrines of Light to find in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you won't be surprised to find out that, for many, the challenge of the Shrine is actually unlocking them.

Shrine Quests usually involve you bringing a crystal to a Shrine in order to get the thing to appear, but sometimes, you'll just be lead on a path towards a shrine.

This is a list of all of the Shrine Quests, where to find them, and what Shrines they unlock. For some of the more difficult ones, we've got individual walkthroughs for them, which we'll link below.

Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom: All Shrine Quests

What is a Shrine Quest?

A Shrine Quest is a quest that will unlock a Shrine of Light, which in turn will reward Link with a Light of Blessing, an item which Link can trade with a Goddess Statue for an additional heart or chunk of stamina. Four Light of Blessings = one heart or 1/5th stamina increase.

Shrine Quests are different to Side Quest and Side Adventures, which are listed separately in your Purah Pad. Make sure you check our list of All Side Adventures if you're looking for those.

Many of these involve carrying a crystal to a Shrine pedestal, but there are some which are completely different and simply require you to follow NPC hints to find them.

If you're looking for maps on where to find all of the Shrines, check out our All Shrine Locations guide. It's actually entirely possible to find some of these Shrines without completing the Shrine Quest, so if you're missing quests but have all the Shrines, that's why!

How many Shrine Quests are there?

There are 31 Shrine Quests in Tears of the Kingdom. You need to clear every single Shrine Quest to get 100% completion, but you don't need to do every single Shrine Quest to activate the shrine.

For example, you don't need to clear Legend of the Soaring Spear to access Utojis Shrine. You could entirely miss the notebook sitting next to the table and figure out what you need to do without reading it!
