Sinakawak Shrine An Uplifting Device Puzzle Solution in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Sinakawak Shrine Location

The TotK Sinakawak Shrine is located in the Hebra region to the northwest. It’s just northwest of New Serenne Stable and southeast of the Lindor’s Bow Skyview Tower. On the map, its coordinates are (-1413, 0756, 0089).

TotK Sinakawak Shrine An Uplifting Device Walkthrough

An Uplifting Device is a three-stage puzzle spread across two rooms. I had a lot of fun playing with the hot air balloons in this one, and my solution is far from the only one. Feel free to experiment.

First An Uplifting Device Puzzle Solution

In the first room of the Sinakawak Shrine in Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll have to build something capable of transporting you over the big wall in front of you. The balloon powered by a candle to your right should give you a clue as to what you need to do. Here’s what I did:

  • Grab one of the balloons and the largest platform from the right side of the room.
  • Attach a candle to the platform, and then place the balloon on top of it. The balloon will immediately start to rise, so you might have to pull it back down with the Ultrahand it you can’t jump on it fast enough. Once you’re on, ride it to the top.

  • The puzzle on the second floor is a little easier. The door you need to enter is locked, but you’ll notice an orange button above it. You need to press that button.
  • Get yourself a candle, then a balloon from the right side of the area. Make sure the candle is directly under the button, then fuse the candle to the bottom of it. The balloon should rise up and press the button, opening the door.

Third An Uplifting Device Puzzle Solution and Chest

The next part of the TotK An Uplifting Device Shrine is a two-parter, but it’s worth the effort because you’ll open the exit and get a treasure chest.

  • First, we want to get the optional chest, and for that, we need the big stone ball in the lower right side of the room. Climb down the ladder and get it.
  • Get the ball, then attach it to the platform in the upper left part of the room. Then move your new ball-platform monstrosity to the right side of the room.
  • Now it’s candle and balloon time. Attach several balloons and candles to the platform (and the stone ball if you like). You can see a photo of how I did it above.
  • Then once your platform reaches the upper level, climb back up, cross the walkway, grab your gigantic stone ball, and drop it into the large slot to open the door to the bonus chest, which contains an Opal.
  • Now I did the same exact thing to the small stone ball on the lower left side of the room. Attach it to a balloon and power that balloon with a candle. When it reaches the top, grab the small stone ball and drop it into the slot.
  • Proceed to the final room to claim your reward!
