Genshin Impact Shrine of Depths Locations: Inazuma, Liyue, Mondstadt, and Sumeru Shrine maps & how to open

There are lots of locations to visit and explore in Genshin Imapct, but one type of landmark you'll probably want to make a point to seek out as a priority are the Shrines, otherwise each known as the Shrine of Depths. We're here to help you find them quickly.

There's a number of these shrines spread across the world of Teyvat - found in the Mondstadt, Liyue, Inazuma and Sumeru regions alike. As more regions are added to the game, there'll be more shrines to unlock, each themed and with its own method of unlocking. These maps cover all of them - read on to learn about locating them more completely and about how to unlock the Shrine of Depths.

Unlocking each Shrine of Depths in every region of Genshin Impact yields great rewards - and we know where to find them.

We've got plenty more help for navigating Teyvat if you want - just check out some more of our Genshin Impact guides covering things like where to find the Nameless Treasure, choosing a gift for Lisa, and Amenoculus locations and Geoculus Locations, plus more general system primers like our cooking recipes list and Elemetnal Combos explainer.

Genshin Impact Shrine of Depths Locations: maps & unlocks

The maps featured on this page are pretty simple, all told. Each map won't feature the entire world of Genshin Impact, or even the entirety of each of the game's regions. Instead, it'll feature everything that's relevant for each section of this guide - just large enough to feature all of the Shrine of Depths locations within each region.

Once you get near them, the Shrines aren't difficult to see, so even this zoomed-out map should be sufficient: they're fairly bland-looking, square-shaped buildings, though they do glow with a mysterious power.

Here's the maps for each Shrine of Depths type, with the location of each and every shrine:

Mondstadt shrines map | Shrine of Depths Locations

Here's the Shrine of Depths locations for the Mondstadt region, with its wind theme. This is of course the region where your Genshin Impact adventure begins, and you'll require the green Mondstadt keys to open each.

The Liyue Shrine of Depths follow the region's earthy theme, and will require a Liyue shrine key of the same sort of yellow/gold color that represents that in Genshin.

Inazuma shrines map | Shrine of Depths Locations

New for the version 2.0 update of Genshin Impact, the Inazuma Shrines will require an electro-themed purple shrine key, as you'd expect. You can get the keys in some slightly different ways in this region, however. This can be a reward from the Archon Statues or from the Sakura Tree.

Version 3.0 update of Genshin Impact follows a similiar system as the previous Shrine of Depths. The shrine keys are found by offering dendroculus to a dendro archon statue or as a reward from the Dream Tree (Vanaran Favor).

Each Shrine of Depths is well worth seeking out, as inside each one you will find a Luxurious Chest that once opened will reward you with 40 Primogems, which can go towards your next Gacha Banner Draw, plus 60 Adventure EXP, a random selection of Weapons and Artifacts, and finally 10 Sigils. It's a very good haul for doing nothing other than tracking down the shrine and opening it - and we've just made the first part of that trivial. The problem, however, is that opening the shrines requires a key...

How to unlock Shrine of Depths locations with keys in Genshin Impact

As we've said above, in order to unlock any Shrine of Depths, you'll need to use a key - or to be specific, "A key that can break the seal on the ancient Shrines of Depths scattered around Teyvat," as the in-game description says.

There are two types of key, depending on the region: there's the blue-tinted, wind-themed Mondstadt Shrine of Depths Key, the golden, earth-themed Liyue Shrine of Depths Key, the purple, electro-themed Inazuma Shrine of Depths Key, and the green, dendro-themed Sumeru Shrine of Depths Key.

All of these keys are available in similar ways: they can appear as rewards or drops from certain types of content. Early on you'll be able to recieve one Mondstadt Shrine Key by completing a quest to Upgrade the Statues of the Seven in Mondstadt to Level 6 - this is a nice early Adventure Handbook Chapter 4 quest, so this will in all likelihood be your starter key. Other ways we've figured out to unlock more keys are as follows:

Mondstadt Shrine of Depths Key Locations

  • Domains: Acension Domain (Ascend: Clear the Ruins - gives 3 keys), Eagle's Gate, Temple of the Falcon, Temple of the Lion, Temple of the Wolf
  • Adventurer Handbook: Chapter 4 - Upgrade the Mondstadt Statues of the Seven to Level 6, Chapter 5 - Open 100 Chests)
  • Quests: New Horizons of Adventure (from Katheryne at the Adventurer's stand in Mondstadt)

Liyue Shrine of Depths Key Locations:

  • Domains: Domain of Forsaken Ruins, Domain of Wayward Path, Hidden Palace of Guizang Formula (2 keys, for 2 different levels)
  • Quests: The Chi of Guyun, Treasure Lost/Treasure Found, The Tree Who Stands Alone

Inazuma Shrine of Depths Key Locations:

  • Reach various levels with the Inazuma Region Statues of the Seven
  • Quests: Story Quest Reward for Act II - Defeat Raiden Shogun
  • Reach various Sakura Favor levels

Sumeru Shrine of Depths Key Locations:

  • Reach various levels with the Sumeru Region Statues of the Seven (Level 2, 4, and 6)
  • Reach various Vanarana Favor levels. 
  • To get access to Vanaran Favor, you must have completed the World Quest, Trees and Dreams. 

WIth higher level content, multiple keys can drop. The keys are region exclusive, meaning they can only unlock that region's shrines - and if and when Genshin Impact expands with more regions, you can bet there'll be more themed shrines and matching keys to come.
