Noya Neha is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The challenge inside is a Test of Strength Shrine, has you taken on a powerful foe in combat.

If you need help finding and solving other Shrines, our Shrine location maps page can help, while our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough and guide covers other aspects of the game.

Where to find Noya Neha

The Noya Neha shrine is found within the Central Hyrule region, somewhat west of Hyrule Tower, but far enough way to be easily approachable from early game.

It's specifically found on the edge of a river. If you follow a road that leads west out of the Hyrule Castle grounds, there is a bridge. Go north from there, and it's on the right.

Alternatively, you could scale Ridgeland Tower to the west, and glide off going east.

Either way, it's not immediately apparent there is a Shrine nearby. Find the wall covered in barbs, and set fire to it with a fire arrow to burn it away, revealing a cave with the Shrine we're looking for.

The prior link has details on how to best defeat it, but if you're already exploring around the Hyrule Tower and Ridgeland regions, you probably know what you are doing.
