The world of The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is full of challenges and obstacles that Link must overcome to save the kingdom. One of the most important aspects of the game is the Shrines, which are sacred places that hold great power and offer valuable rewards. The Nachoyah Shrine is the final Shrine that players must complete, and it requires the use of the Recall (Rewind) ability, which is obtained from Princess Zelda in the Temple of Time.

Shrines are an essential part of the game, not only because they help players unlock new abilities but also because they serve as Fast Travel points after a certain point in the game. Rauru, the ancient sage, will appear before Link and guide him towards the Nachoyah Shrine. This final Shrine only has two puzzles for players to solve, but they require the efficient use of the Rewind ability to complete.

This guide will provide players with a step-by-step walkthrough of the Nachoyah Shrine, including all the necessary steps to solve the puzzles and progress through the game.
