Gerudo Town is a location in Breath of the Wild.

Features and Overview

Gerudo Town is the main town of Gerudo Desert and the Gerudo people. Only women are allowed to enter the Town.[1] If Link tries to enter Gerudo Town, the guards will not let him.[2] Link must complete the "Forbidden City Entry" Main Quest before he can get inside the Town. This Quest allows Link to enter Gerudo Town by appearing female and disguising himself in a Gerudo outfit. Once inside, Link can meet with Lady Riju, chief of the Gerudo, in the palace to begin the "Divine Beast Vah Naboris" Main Quest.[3] Gerudo Town also contains several Shrine Quests and Side Quests, including "The Silent Swordswomen", "The Seven Heroines", "Medicinal Molduga", "The Mystery Polluter", "Tools of the Trade", "The Search for Barta" and "The Secret Club's Secret." Link can receive the legendary Thunder Helm from Riju by completing "The Thunder Helm" Side Quest. The town also houses a Goddess Statue and a Korok at the very top of the rock above the palace. An Inn called Hotel Oasis resides in the town. Gerudo Town has many shops, including four General Stores, two Sand-Seal Rental Shops, The Noble Canteen, the Arrow Specialty Shop, Fashion Passion, Starlight Memories and the Gerudo Secret Club. At certain times, there is a class being taught by Ashai. Traysi can be found in various places throughout the town. There are two Treasure Chests in Gerudo Town. One can be found near Fashion Passion and contains a Silver Rupee. The other Chest is buried under the ground near near the Goddess Statue and contains a Golden Bow. The Daqo Chisay Shrine resides right outside the town walls. Link is not harmed by Temperature while in the town. Link can wear Sand Boots or Snow Boots instead of the Gerudo Sirwal in Gerudo Town. He can also wear the Thunder Helm instead of the Gerudo Veil. The Gerudo soldiers will throw Link out if he removes any piece of his Gerudo outfit, Thunder Helm, Sand Boots or Snow Boots.

In the palace, Riju's throne and the stone tablets to the left and right of it have Gerudo words inscribed on them. When translated, the throne reads "A resilient desert flower, facing the sun's gaze, Gerudo grows brilliant, while others". The tablet to the left reads "We stand vigilant, in the desert sun we are brilliant, over everyone" and the tablet to the rights reads "Vigilant in the sun growing brilliant Gerudo never outdone". In addition, the pedestal that the Thunder Helm rests on has Gerudo text on it as well, which reads "Brilliant in the sun".

After the quest 'Divine Beast Vah Naboris (Quest)' is complete, there are seven fulltime residents. Deltan can be found hunched over a table, sobbing. Pokki is found chatting to Furosa, and Konora is on a seat parallel to the one Sumati and Yaido are sat on. Pyra, Sumati and Yaido can also be found inside here, talking about a password.[4] They stop talking about it as soon as they notice that Link is listening.[5] After Link accesses the Gerudo Secret Club, they instead talk about Perda's search for Lover's Pond. At night it is more lively, as is mentioned by Pearle; Pritana can be found there before going to Nali's house, intoxicated. Nellie gets up in the evening and goes to get a drink to "wake her up", and the Hylian Jules is found stood against a wall, drinking from a large cup.
