Location and Uses

The Stone Tablet is the Quest giver for the Shrine Quest, "The Three Giant Brothers". Upon reading it, Link will be instructed to collect the Ancient Orbs guarded by the three Hinox brothers atop Mount Taran and place them in the pedestals near the Stone Tablet.[1] Upon doing so, the Tawa Jinn Shrine will rise from the ground and the Stone Tablet's Quest will be complete.

The eight Stone Tablets can be found at the end of each dungeon and are obtained after defeating a dungeon's respective boss in Ancient Stone Tablets. The Tablets contain writings in a language used in ancient Hyrule, requiring Princess Zelda to use the Book of Mudora to decipher their message. The Stone Tablets reveal that the Silver Arrows, a sealed power needed to defeat Ganon, are found at Death Mountain.
