Genshin Impact’s Golden Apple Archipelago has many quests, including “The Other Side of Isle and Sea,” which requires that you hunt down murals around the archipelago. Our Genshin Impact guide will navigate you through the waters to help you find all the mural locations with maps.

The Golden Apple Archipelago is a limited time area for patch 1.6, and it won’t be available after July 20, according to an in-game countdown. Make sure you complete your world quests and grab your loot before then.

To start the quest, interact with any of the murals below. Once you do, take a photo of it using the in-game camera, accessible from the menu. After taking a photo of the first mural, you’ll need to find more. After finding them all, you’ll return to Mondstadt and talk to Sayid in the library for your reward.

We’ll show you where to find all five mural locations below.

The Broken Isle mural is found in a cavern, which is blocked off by a bunch of cracked rocks. There is a path leading up to it, so the entrance should be easy to find. Use a Claymore character to break the rocks open easily.
