In order to make an End Portal in Minecraft, you will need to have the following materials.


  • 12 Eyes of Ender
  • 12 End Portal Frames

How to build an End Portal from Scratch

The best and easiest way to travel to the End biome is to create your own End Portal by using the aforementioned materials. Notably, the End Portal should be built standing in one spot and placing the portal frames in a circle around you. This step ensures that the Ender Eyes are facing the right direction to enable the portal.


1. Make the Frame

The first and foremost thing is to create the frame for End Portal from 12 end portal frames. Now, you will have to add three end portal frames, building one side of the portal and turn to the right side to add three more end portal frames for the other side of the portal. Make sure the green tabs on the top of the end portal frames must be pointed towards the insides of the portal.

In the next step, you will have to take the right turn and add three additional end portal frames for the next side of the portal. Now, turn to your right and add the remaining three frames. Here’s a look at what it must look like:

2. Add the Eye of Ender to finish the End Portal

Once you have managed to create the frame, now it is time to complete the End Portal. In order to do so, you will have to add 12 Eyes of Ender. While standing in the centre of the portal, make sure to keep the Eyes of Ender inside each of the end portal frame-blocks.

It is to be noted that we have added 11 of the Eyes of Ender. Don’t add the 12th Eye of Ender while you are standing in the centre of the portal. If you do so, it will activate the portal and you will fall into the portal take you to the End biome.

When you are done adding the last Eye of Ender, your End Portal will be activated. Once End Portal is activated, you will be able to go the End biome and battle the Ender Dragon. This is the easiest and quickest way to find your way to the End.
