Doing the Jiosin Shrine reminded me of the time when I was a child trying to figure out the correct shapes and sizes of blocks to solve puzzles. This shrine is pretty much the same thing only this time you’re a grown man doing it in a video game. Since we are not as creative and curious as children, it might be hard for some of us to solve the Jiosin Shrine puzzles (I know it was for me). This Shrine teaches you how to use Shape Rotation to solve problems and move shapes to get from A to B.

The Jiosin Shrine requires the Ultrahand ability, so you cannot complete it without it. Thankfully, you get the Ultrahand ability before leaving the Great Sky Island. In this guide, I will help you solve all Jiosin Shrine Puzzles in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.
How to Complete Jiosin Shrine in Zelda TotK
There are three basic puzzles in the Jiosin Shrine that are solved by rotating shapes to fit the holes perfectly. But first things first, the location of the Jiosin Shrine in Zelda TotK.
To find the Jiosin Shrine in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, go to the following coordinates: -0240, -0374, 0026. The Jiosin Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, is south of the Hyrule Field.
Jiosin Puzzle #1
The first puzzle is inside the door to your right as you enter the shrine. The X shape on the wall is your puzzle that is solved by taking the structure from inside the room and passing it through the X-shaped hole. Simply rotate the structure or align it with the X shape it will easily pass through the hole. Here’s a video tutorial on how to do this:
For the next step, place the structure between the gap to use it as a bridge to cross over to the other side.
Jiosin Puzzle #2
When you get to the other side, the second puzzle is to your right. Two blocks of stone are connected to each other and you must take them out of the hole in the wall. Again, you must align the stones in a certain way to get them through the hole. This one is a bit tricky so follow the video instructions carefully:
Jiosin Puzzle #3
The final puzzle is the hardest of them all; position yourself outside the other puzzle room that has a distinct diamond-shaped opening that separates the two areas.
Get the stone cube structure and manipulate it until it aligns with the diamond-shaped opening. It might require several attempts, and you may have to release the structure and grab it again from a different angle.
Once you successfully maneuver the structure into the second room, you will notice a set of steps leading to a doorway that grants access to the final section of the Shrine.
Place the stone cube upright and Ascend above. Here’s how to do it:
