Sepapa Shrine is all about backtracking. So, let’s get ready to run around a lot. Here’s how to complete Sepapa Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom.

Sepapa Shrine is really just about going in circles. Expect to use Rewind a lot! Now, let’s jump right into it.

How to Get to Sepapa Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom

If you’re not sure where Sepapa Shrine is, don’t worry! Just head to the Hyrule Field East of Hyrule Castle. You can cross the ominously named Bone Bridge. And if you come at night, you’ll see why!

Now that we’re all where we need to be, let’s get this shrine done.

Puzzle 1

So, Puzzle 1 is pretty easy, and visually it’s what we’ll be doing in puzzle 2.

Climb the ramp and wait for the platform to go through the slot halfway. Use rewind, then step onto the platform. When it reaches the second level, step off.

That’s not too bad. The second one is a little more time-consuming.

 Puzzle 2

So, you’ll notice that there’s a locked door, and on either side is a brazier we’ll need to light. Notice that there’s also a torch here at the foot of the braziers.

Pick up the torch, then wait for the raft. I will say that it’s very, very important that you don’t accidentally drop the torch on the raft. Doing so will cause the torch to vanish into the pits of despawning and you’ll have to start the Shrine again. Unless you have a torch on hand, I guess?

It was a very sad mistake to learn firsthand.

Equip the torch, then stand on the raft. When you grow close to the lit braziers, attack them to light your torch.

Once your torch is lit, rewind the raft to bring you right back to the starting shore. Then light both braziers on either side of the locked door.

Doing this will open up the next room.

How to Get the Hidden Chest in Sepapa Shrine

It’s actually pretty easy to get the Hidden Chest here! Once you’ve lit your torch, opt to go all the way to the far shore. Once there, jump off and hold your torch to the wall of leaves. You can hold your torch there by pressing down the attack button.

Eventually, the wall of leaves will ignite and the wooden platform the hidden chest is standing on will collapse. The chest will fall right in front of you, giving you a pretty good Construct Bow!

Alternatively, if you’ve already lost your torch, you can use an arrow that’s lit on fire to ignite the wall.

Puzzle 3

This next puzzle seems like it’s complicated, but it’s actually pretty straightforward. There’s a ball on the right wall and two grooves. If you put the ball in the top groove, it will open the top gate. If you put the ball in the second groove, it will open the bottom gate.

First, use Ultrahand to put the ball in the groove nearest to the ball. Then lift the ball and put it in the second, bottommost groove. Run through the first gate, then turn towards the ball and use rewind on it. It will return to the top groove, allowing you to pass through the top gate.

And, yep, that’s it! Go claim your Light Blessing.
