How to find and solve Saas Ko'sah in the Central region.

Saas Ko'sah is one of the many shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and is located within the Central region. The challenge inside is one of many Test of Strength Shrines, 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 Saas Ko'sah

This is the only Shrine located within Hyrule Castle, which is located within the game's Central region.

It's specifically found in the Castle's Docks. The easiest way to get in is by going to the north, on the cliff overlooking the moat, and gliding south to the castle, with an opening in the rock.

Inside the docks, take out or sprint past any enemies that spot you, then head up the steps to the left, and continue going to the upper level.
