The Creation of the World,[1] also known as the Creation Myth,[2] is an event in The Legend of Zelda series.


During the Creation of the World, the three Golden Goddesses created Kingdom of Hyrule.[1] Din created the land, Nayru created order, and Farore created all life.[2]

The Goddesses then departed for the heavens. The Triforce was formed at the point where the goddesses left the world. Its resting place became the Sacred Realm.[3][4][5]
