One of the Shrines in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the Rona Kachta Shrine, or the Rona Kachta’s Blessing. The Shrine itself is no challenge at all. As you enter the Rona Kachta Shrine, you will find that Link can access the Shrine’s chest, access the altar, and talk to the monk immediately. The real challenge is going through the Forgotten Temple to access Rona Kachta Shrine. In this guide, you’ll learn how to survive the Forgotten Temple to access and complete Rona Kachta Shrine, obtain the chest inside, and claim the Spirit Orb.

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild: Rona Kachta Shrine Guide

Link is rewarded with Spirit Orbs for completing Shrines. You can exchange Spirit Orbs for more Heart Containers or Stamina Vessels. One hundred and twenty Shrines are found all over Hyrule so that Link can obtain 120 Spirit Orbs. You get to decide whether you want Link to have more Hearts or more Stamina.


The Rona Kachta Shrine can be found at the very end of the Forgotten Temple which you can find and enter at the bottom of a gorge/canyon just north of Serenne Stable and Maag No’rah Shrine (or southeast of the Snowfield Stable and the Rin Oyaa Shrine and east of Hebra Tower). The Rona Kachta Shrine is one of eight shrines in the Woodland Tower region.

The Forgotten Temple

Before going to the Forgotten Temple, make sure that Link has enough hearts, weapons, and food (cooked or not cooked) for healing, as Link will be facing more than 10 Decayed Guardians (12 to be exact), even a number of them at the same time.

After reaching the bottom of the gorge/canyon just north of Serenne Stable, head to the northeast until you find the wall of the ruins of a temple. In the middle of this wall, there is a hole in the form of an arch, and this is the entrance to the Forgotten Temple.

Upon entering the Forgotten Temple, you will immediately be greeted by targeting lasers from six different Decayed Guardians. After surviving this room, there is another hole in the wall at the far end of the room, and beyond this wall is another set of Decayed Guardians and their targeting lasers. Finally, after that is the Rona Kachta Shrine, and behind it is the biggest Goddess Statue in all of Hyrule. 

Here are some tips to survive the Forgotten Temple:

  1. You can deflect the Decayed Guardians blasts with a well-timed shield parry. If you time it well enough, you can even deflect several blasts with one shield parry. Deflecting a Decayed Guardian’s blast back at them can instantly kill them, so it not only looks very cool, but it can cut the struggle of having so many Decayed Guardians targeting Link at the same time. Doing this, however, can really damage your shields and cause them to break. especially if your shields are weak. Bring a lot of shields if this is your method of choice.
  2. You can also use Ancient Arrows as they deal huge damage to Guardians. Shooting Ancient Arrows directly in the Guardian’s eye can instantly kill them.
  3. Take advantage of the rubble and other things in the surroundings to hide from the other Decayed Guardians and help you focus on one Decayed Guardian at a time.
  4. Take advantage of the updrafts to move around the temple. You can also use the updrafts to glide and evade the Decayed Guardians’ blasts.
  5. Save the game as frequently as possible so that you don’t have to go back to the very beginning every time you die and lose all your progress of surviving through the Decayed Guardians. You can load the game to your nearest save when Link is about to die.
  6. Make sure that Link is wearing powerful armor to lessen the damage dealt by the Decayed Guardians’ blasts and powerful weapons to deal huge damage to them. Additionally, and as mentioned above, bring a lot of food, whether cooked or not cooked and other restorative items for healing.
  7. If you want, you can actually just try and evade all of the Decayed Guardians as it is not actually a requirement to defeat all the Decayed Guardians in order to access the Rona Kachta Shrine. You can take advantage of the updrafts to move around and evade the Decayed Guardians’ blasts. Upon reaching the Rona Kachta Shrine, the Decayed Guardians won’t be able to see Link as they would all be behind a wall. If you choose to do this, however, make sure you have enough stamina or items that restore stamina to glide and climb as much as you can.

The Forgotten Temple is part of a side quest called ‘A Gift from the Monks,’ which Link will receive after completing all 120 Shrines in the game. On this side quest, the monks (all the monks that gave Link trials) will task Link to go to the Forgotten Temple, go to the Goddess Statue behind the Rona Kachta Shrine. There will be three chests that contain the Cap of the Wild, the Tunic of the Wild, and the Trousers of the Wild, which, when each of them is worn, look like Link’s classic green look. Additionally, if the set is worn, Link will also have a set bonus called Master Sword Beam Up, which means that wearing the set will let Link fire blasts of energy from Master Sword further when at full health.

Rona Kachta’s Blessing 

Now that you have lived through the Forgotten Temple and reached the end, you can enter the Rona Kachta Shrine. This Shrine will no longer have a challenge or puzzle inside as the challenge was already on trying to access the Shrine. Upon entering the Shrine, this is what Link must do:

  1. Upon entering the Rona Kachta Shrine, head up the stairs, and there will be a chest. Open the chest to obtain a Great Flameblade.
  2. Then, just after the chest, continue ahead and talk to the monk and claim your Spirit Orb!

The Rona Kachta Shrine or Rona Kachta’s Blessing is one of eight shrines in the Woodland Tower region. The other shrines are the Monya Toma Shrine or Drawing Parabolas, the Keo Ruug Shrine or the Fateful Stars, the Mirro Shaz Shrine or the Tempered Power, the Ketoh Wawai Shrine or Ketoh Wawai’s Blessing, the Maag Halan Shrine or Maag Halan’s Blessing, the Daag Chokah Shrine or Daag Chokah’s Blessing, and the Kuhn Sidajj Shrine or Kuhn Sidajj’s Blessing.
