Noya Neha shrine walkthrough in Zelda Breath of the Wild

Defeat the Guardian Scout to finish the Minor Test of Strength

Noya Neha is a shrine within The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule Field.

On this page, we’ll help you find the Noya Neha shrine location and puzzle solution, and walk you through the “Minor Test of Strength” to collect the chest and spirit orb reward at the end.

The entrance to the Noya Neha shrine is blocked by some thorns and boulders. Set the spiked vines on fire and then blow up the boulders to unlock the shrine.

Once you are done here, our shrine locations page can direct you to the next nearest shrine to tackle.

Noya Neha shrine location

The most difficult part of Noya Neha shrine is finding it and getting in. It’s northeast of Central Tower, near Hyrule Castle. But it’s also hidden. To get in, you’ll need to use a flame arrow or its equivalent to burn away the thorny branches preventing you from entering the cave in which it sits (and some remote bombs to clear the cracked rocks along the way).

Inside, you’ll find a minor test of strength, which involves a Guardian Scout II. As always, use Guardian weapons, because they’re the most powerful against their namesakes. And use the pillars as cover when the attacks get too strong.

Your enemy wields a Ancient Battle Axe Attack Up + 12, which you’ll get as a reward for defeating it. You'll also find a treasure chest with a Knight’s Shield on your way out, just before meeting Noya Neha and collecting your spirit orb.
