In Twilight Princess, the Eldin Province is located north of the Faron Province, southeast of the Lanayru Province, and is situated on the eastern part of the map of Hyrule. The province was named after Eldin, one of the three dragons of the Era of the Goddess Hylia. It includes Kakariko Village, Death Mountain, east Hyrule Field, and the Hidden Village, as well as the second dungeon, Goron Mines. The Eldin Province has the largest Hyrule Field out of all of the provinces, and further up north the field is the Bridge of Eldin, which connects the Eldin Province to the Lanayru Province. Protected by the Spirit of Light, Eldin, the province incorporates the name of the goddess Din.
This section of Hyrule is the second one visited by Link, which is entered after obtaining the Fused Shadow from the Forest Temple. Here, the young hero scales up Death Mountain and bests the Gorons at a sumo match, who allow him to enter the Goron Mines and retrieve the second Fused Shadow after the defeat of Fyrus. This is also the area in which Link must battle King Bulblin in order to rescue Colin. Later on in the game, the young hero must return to the Eldin Province to access the Hidden Village and eventually obtain the Ancient Sky Book from its only resident, Impaz.
The two final battles against Ganondorf are fought in the Hyrule Field section of the Eldin Province.

In Skyward Sword, the Eldin Province is protected by a great Fire Dragon of the same name who was appointed to oversee the region by the goddess Hylia. Encompassing the Eldin Volcano, the Volcano Summit, the Fire Sanctuary, and the Earth Temple, it is home to the treasure hunting Mogma tribe. Recently, a large portion of the province has been taken over by a large force of Bokoblins, setting up outposts, and scaring off the local Mogmas.
