Tawa Jinn is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and is accessed via the Three Giant Brothers Shrine Quest. The challenge inside, named the Tawa Jinn's Blessing trial, is simply a reward for finding it, so you're bound to walk out a success.

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

Where to find Tawa Jinn

The Tawa Jinn shrine is located within the Faron region, specifically a fair way north and slightly west of Lurelin Village, or even further north-east of Faron Tower. To get there, follow the road north out of Lurelin Village, and then break away from the road to keep heading north around the various cliffs and hills.

The Quest is started from a hilltop that's surrounded by giant bones, with three glowing holes for spheres in the ground, by a small altar.

Tawa Jinn and Three Giant Brothers quest solution

First, go and take a look at the stone tablet by the kind of altar on that bony hilltop, in order to start the Quest.

You need to place three spheres into the holes on that hill, but that's easier than it sounds - each sphere is located on the body of a corresponding Hinox nearby.

The Hinox are each located in their own field of giant bones, roughly in the directions of the three sphere holes on the hill - one to the south, one west, and one north-east.

We also have advice on how to beat Guardians, where to get easy Rupees, tame horses, find how to get cold resistance, fire resistance and heat resistance, and learn the most effective means of cooking with ingredients for bonus effects. We also have a DLC 1 guide and DLC 2 guide, including all Tingle, Majora's Mask, Phantom, Midna outfit locations.


There are roughly three ways to tackle each Hinox. First, you can paraglide to - or climb up - the giant bones nearby, and pick them off with your bow from range (remember Hinox's weaknesses are their big orange eyes!). When defeated, you can take the sphere from their corpes.

The second way is to paraglide onto - or sneak onto - their bellies and pinch the sphere from them, making a hasty exit before they catch you!

65e

The third is straight-up ground combat. You'll still have to go for the eye where possible, and be sure to make use of good timing and dodge their attacks, rather than trying to block them!

65f

However you choose to deal with them, when you're done place the three spheres in the holes back on the hilltop, and the Tawa Jinn shrine will appear.

Inside, it's just a matter of collecting your reward, a Great Thunderblade.

After that, you're all done!
