The Zalta Wa Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name Two Orbs to Guide You,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

The Zalta Wa Shrine is located in the Breach of Demise in Hyrule Ridge. It's southwest of the Tabantha Tower on the north side of the path. When Link enters, he is greeted by Zalta Wa, the Monk who designed the eponymous Ancient Shrine.[2]

Themes and Navigation

The Zalta Wa Shrine has one large chamber with an Ancient Orb on top of one of two pillars next to a pedestal surrounded by a pit. There is also a Shock Switch that controls the moving platform beside it. On the left side of the room, another pedestal can be found inside a small room that can only be accessed by holding down a nearby Floor Switch. A small compartment containing a second Ancient Orb sits in the center of the room above the Shock Switch. This room can be accessed by activating the pedestal surrounded by the pit. Activating the pedestal in the small room causes part of the higher portion of the structure to begin moving back and forth, allowing Link to launch himself to it using the Shock Switch. At the top of this structure, Zalta Wa awaits Link. Upon approaching Zalta Wa, the Monk will present Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial,[3] and will wish Link well before fading away.[4]

A stone Treasure Chest containing a Knight's Bow can be found on top of the enclosed room with the pedestal. Link can reach this Treasure Chest by first activating the moving structure above the Shock Switch, the by flying down the the Treasure Chest from the Monk's platform.
