Ishodag Shrine puzzle solution in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

There are three puzzles you need to solve at the Ishodag Shrine to reach the end and get the Light of Blessing, and one optional puzzle to reach a chest. Here's how to solve all four puzzles:

Ishodag Shrine puzzle solution 1

As soon as you enter the Ishodag Shrine, you'll see a small area with a wall you can't climb at the end, and a fan on the left-hand side.

To solve this first Ishodag Shrine puzzle you need to equip the Ultrahand ability to move the fan to the front of the wall at the back, then place it with the grate part facing up.

All you have to do now is hit the fan to create a wind current, then use your paraglider to reach the top.

Ishodag Shrine puzzle solution 2

To solve the second puzzle, you have to make a boat from a piece of wood and a fan.

First, use Ultrahand to move the piece of wood into the water.

Next, use Ultrahand to move the fan over to the back of the piece of wood, with the grate facing away from the water, then attach the fan to the wood.

Lastly, jump on the wood and hit the fan to start cruising to the other side.

How to get the chest in Ishodag Shrine

Before you move on to the last puzzle, you might want to get the chest on Link's right before you leave. To reach the chest in Ishodag Shrine, you have to use Ultrahand to pick up one of the fans and place it behind the chest, at the bottom of the platform the chest is stuck to, with the grate facing the wall opposite.

Hit the fan you just placed to move the platform and chest to an upright position above Link, then use Ultrahand to move the other fan beside the platform. Hit this fan then use your paraglider to float to the top and reach the chest, which contains an Opal.

Ishodag Shrine puzzle solution 3

For the third and last puzzle in Ishodag Shrine, all you have to do is use Ultrahand to pick up both of the fans and place them on either side of the lift in the middle, with the grates facing down.

Once you've attached both fans, get in the lift and hit one of them, which activates both and sends you to the top.

Examine the green circle at the end to get your Light of Blessing.

Good luck with completing other Shrines in Tears of the Kingdom!
