The Mayachin Shrine can be found just north of the Hyrule Field Skyview Tower. Though it is quite straightforward to find on the Zelda TOTK interactive map, the puzzle is anything but easy. Don’t worry as we will give you a complete walkthrough to do it easily. So here’s how to do the TotK Mayachin Shrine puzzle in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom:

  1. As soon as you enter the Mayachin Shrine, you will see a rotating ramp in the middle of a huge gap. Use it to reach the other side of the platform.
  2. You will notice a huge arena wherein a giant ball rolls down the slope.
  3. You will also find a wooden stake, a switch, two poles, and a yellow crystal.
  4. Stand on the switch to reveal a bullseye target on the left-hand side of the arena.
  5. You aim to hit the ball at the target to solve the Mayachin Shrine Puzzle in Zelda TOTK.
  6. You will first need to use your Ultrahand to attach the wooden stake to the device in the middle of the arena.
  7. Then, please pick up the two poles and attach them to the end of the stake to make a baseball bat.
  8. Now, come back on the platform and hit the crystal as soon as the ball reaches close to the end of the arena.
  9. Doing this will swing your crafted bat toward the left. Keep practicing and timing your shots to direct the ball toward the bullseye target.
  10. Once the large ball hits the target, the exit to the shrine will automatically be unlocked. This will also solve the Mayachin Shrine puzzle.
  11. However, you must stay back and spend a few minutes trying to grab the chest, which can be found similarly.
