Location Palmorae Ruins

"A Fragmented Monument" is a Shrine Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Overview

Link can obtain the Quest by speaking to Garini in the Palmorae Ruins after obtaining the Camera Rune. Speaking to Garini, he will inform Link that the stone monument at the Palmorae Ruins was recently shattered due to an earthquake.[2] Before breaking, the stone monument bore instructions to summon the Kah Yah Shrine from underground.[3] If Link offers to help decipher the message that was on the complete monument, Garini will ask him to find the missing Monument Shards and return with a picture of the text on each Shard's face.[4] To aid with Link's search, Garini informs him that the text on the Monument Shards glows at night, making them easier to see.[5] Additionally, Garini hints that one Shard is close by to their location.[6]

The first Monument Shard is located in the Palmorae Ruins, near some trees due east of Garini. The second Monument Shard is located among some rocks and flotsam to the west of the Ruins.[7] The third and final Monument Shard sits beneath a palm tree at the tip of Soka Point.[8] Upon bringing pictures of all three Monument Shards, Garini will decipher and recite the full text, which instructs two people to kneel upon the pedestals nearby.[9] In fulfilling this task, the Kah Yah Shrine will rise from the ground, allowing Link entry and completing the Quest.

If Link attempts to initiate the Quest beforehand, Garini will simply wonder what was written on the stone monument without acknowledging his presence.[10]

Objectives

Stage Description
1 Garini wants to know what the fragmented stone monument said when it was whole.

He's asked you to note down with whatever tools you have what each scattered fragment of the monument looks like.
2 You took pictures of the scattered fragments of the stone monument and showed them to Garini.

Once assembled, you discovered that the writing on the monument read as follows:

"When the two find their place and kneel in reverence, the shrine will reveal itself."
Complete You knelt on one platform as Garini took his place on the other, causing an ancient shrine to appear!

Garini seemed satisfied as he gazed upon the new discovery.
