One of the minor irks some fans leveled at Breath of the Wild was the fact that there were only four major dungeons in the entire game.

So, now that the dust is finally beginning to settle, how many dungeons are in Tears of the Kingdom? Let’s get into the deets, shall we?

How Many Dungeons are There in TOTK?

Fortunately, Dungeons do make a return in a big way as there are undoubtedly more of them in Tears of the Kingdom. However, it’s fair to say that the ones featured in TOTK aren’t akin to the traditional Dungeons of yore like pre-Breath of the Wild Zelda titles used to offer. Instead, they’re more akin to the Divine Beasts from 2017’s quasi-reboot.

To summarise, there are seven Dungeons in the game that we currently know of and they are as follows:

  • Water Temple
  • Wind Temple
  • Lightning Temple
  • Construct Factory
  • Fire Temple
  • Forgotten Foundation
  • Hyrule Castle

It’s worth noting that thanks to the sheer size of Tears of the Kingdom, there’s a possibility that there are more to be discovered. If we do find any more, we’ll make sure to update this post so that it’s up-to-date.

How Many Shrines Are There in TOTK?

In total, there are 152 Shrines in the game. These function as smaller vignette-style mini Dungeons that award players with Lights of Blessing, which can be used to upgrade Link’s Stamina or Health.
