The Sikukuu Shrine is a puzzle in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It is located in the Eldin Mountains on a rocky outcropping southeast of the Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower. Players can launch themselves from the tower and paraglide slightly southeast to reach the shrine. The shrine consists of two puzzles that players need to solve.

The first puzzle involves a large cog spinning counter-clockwise with a ball dropping from the device above it. Unfortunately, the ball falls into the abyss because of the cog’s direction. Players can use Link’s Recall ability to change the cog’s direction. A new ball will drop and move in the right direction, eventually landing in the ball holder. This will activate the device and grant access to the next room.

The second puzzle involves a lazy cog that isn’t moving at all. Players can use Ultrahand to spin the lever to the cog’s right to reach the upper platform with the shrine statue. Ideally, the cog should spin clockwise. After working the lever for a few seconds, players can use Recall on the cog and hop in. 

Before heading up and grabbing the Light of Blessing, why not get an extra weapon? Riding the cog down will lead to a secret room with a chest containing a level 15 Mighty Zonaite Longsword with Durability Up. Players can then use Ascend to head back up and repeat the process to exit the shrine.
