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

Zalta Wa Shrine is located in the Breach of Demise in Hyrule Field. When Link enters, he is greeted by Zalta Wa, the Monk who designed the eponymous Ancient Shrine.[2]

Themes and Navigation

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. 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 is underneath the central structure of the Shrine. This room can be accessed by activating the Pedestal surrounded by the pit. Activating the Pedestal in the small room causes part of the central structure to begin moving back and forth.

Zalta Wa awaits Link at the top of the Shrine's central structure. 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 room with the Pedestal.


The Shrine's name, Zalta Wa, is a corruption of Satoru Takizawa. Takizawa is the art director for Breath of the Wild.
