Tajikats Shrine Location

The Tajikats Shrine is located at coordinates 0344, 1009, 0016, directly Southeast of Central Hyrule. Upon entering the Shrine, you’ll quickly learn it’s going to have you building with logs. Lots of logs.

Building With Logs First Puzzle Solution

In the first puzzle room, you’ll see logs nearby and a ledge you have to reach. I simply leaned one log up on the next platform with my Ultrahand ability and climbed it.

You’ll need to tinker with the log’s axis to get it to be positioned correctly, but once you’ve got this figured out, you’re ready for the subsequent building with logs puzzles.

The next room in the Tajikats Shrine will have you building a bridge across two large platforms over water. You’ll notice this room has additional logs — and you’re going to need them.

There are probably a few ways to complete this puzzle area since a game like TotK boasts plenty of creative solutions, but I found this to be the simplest method after tinkering for a bit.

Balance a bridge on the angled platforms. To do so, simply attach three logs to each other by their ends and lean them up on the next platform.

Once you do that, just climb the logs to the following platform.

The next room will have you building a bridge across water again, but it won’t take much effort. Attach two logs by their ends and move them to form a bridge. Then, walk across the bridge slowly so you don’t fall.

The last part of this area requires a longer connection, so you’ll need to make a bridge that is four logs long and lean it on the next platform. Again, walk across the bridge slowly so you don’t fall.

You’ll now be in the final room of the Tajikats Shrine, where you’re faced with a building with logs puzzle unique from the rest. The exit is directly across from the platform you arrive on, and you’ll have to build a boat to get there.

You’ll notice some Zonai Fans and logs to the right to build with. You can build a simple boat by quickly attaching three logs and a fan as shown above.

There’s a hidden treasure chest on a platform to the left of the water, so we recommend taking the quick detour.

If you want to reach the treasure chest, make sure your boat can make it. Place fans on angles as shown above so that the draft will carry your boat in the correct direction.

After you reach the treasure, you can remove one fan with Ultrahand and ride the boat directly to the final platform. Once you make it there, you’ll receive the Light of Blessing for completing the Tajikats Shrine puzzles.
