Rescue the Temple of Time Statue: A Step-by-Step Guide

Finding the Location

When players speak to the statue, it reveals its exact location: 'I am trapped...under the water...behind the stone gate...of the great plateau...' To locate the statue, head north from the Temple of Time towards the northern wall of the plateau. Look for large bodies of water, which indicate the presence of a gate.

Breaking the Barrier

To access the statue, go to the area on the map where the roads connect immediately south of Lake Kolomo. Here, players will find a pile of destructible rocks blocking the wall from the other side. Use a hammer or a rock hammer created by fusing a nearby rock to a weapon to break the rocks. Bomb Flowers can also be used as an alternative. Once the rocks are destroyed, the water will drain, revealing a triangular, rust-colored statue partially buried in the ground.

Speaking to the Statue

Interact with the rust-colored statue and it will instruct players to return to the Temple of Time. Head south and speak to the Temple of Time statue again. It will inform players that a part of it has been freed and that it is speaking from the Depths. This interaction initiates the side quest 'A Call from the Depths.'

Completing the Quest

To complete the quest, players must visit four locations marked with quest indicators around the plateau. At each location, players must collect 'eyes' and deposit them into nearby chasms. Once all the eyes have been collected and deposited, players must deliver them to the statue at the Great Abandoned Central Mine. Only then will players discover the true connection between the Temple of Time statue and the underground statue.


By following these steps, players can successfully save the Temple of Time statue in Tears of the Kingdom. Embark on this quest and uncover the secrets that lie beneath the surface.
