From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
The Shrine of Earth, also known as the Shrine of Greed and the Shrine of Rock, is the first dungeon in Zelda's Adventure. The main items obtained are the Jade Ring and the Red Boots, and the Shrine's boss is Llort.
Entrance to the Temple
The Shrine of Earth is located inside a cave in the Forest of Ogbam. At the start of the game, Shurmak gives Princess Zelda a clue to its location.
This shrine is set inside a large cave, and has several cave formations in the foreground and background. The enemies in the shrine mostly consist of weak enemies like Keese and Tektites, but there are also three Sardaks Zelda must defeat in order to be able to reach Llort. It is a rather linear dungeon with only one fork in the road and a single dark room which the Candle may be used to navigate more easily.
Minor Enemies and Traps
This dungeon contains the only treasure chest in Zelda's Adventure, which talks, and gives Zelda the Jade Ring.
