In Genshin Impact, Abju Road is an underground ruin containing chests, dendrocules, tablets, and a primordial obelisk. To get all these treasures, you will have to solve a lot of mysteries, find primordial sparks and accompany the fairies to the pedestals. In this guide, we will tell you how to get into this temple and how to solve all its puzzles.
How to find and enter the Road of Abju
For the first time, you can get into these ruins as part of a quest world “Lost in the Sands”. However, you won't be able to fully explore the area during this quest, so you'll probably want to come back later.
We advise you to do this only after completing the mission “The Secret of al-Ahmar” in order to get the 1st level of Power for the Red Sands Plate – with him you will be able to interact with all the mechanisms present in this location.
As for returning to the Road of Abju, you can select it in the Slab in the “Descent into the Depths” section and click “Go” to play automatically showed a mark on the map and pointed to the teleport closest to the entrance. You can also simply travel to the fast travel point near Abju Pit, shown in the screenshots below, and then enter the temple.
Solving all Abju Road's puzzles and mysteries
Abju Road Map
These ruins can be divided into three levels: upper, lower and unlockable by plinths. All of them are marked on the map with lines of different colors. To get to certain tiers, you must use the lifts, holes in the floor and control panels, which are also shown in the image above.
< p>It also shows the approximate location of chests, dendrocules, fairies, tablets, and a primordial obelisk, so we will often refer to it when describing the location of riddles, sparks, and other valuable items. Next, we'll take a look at solving puzzles and finding things in order.
Sand-filled chests and tablets
After going to the main hall, you can collect the Tablet: Sheep's Head on the right side and inspect the rich chest on the left, if you did not already do this when completing the first quest of the line called “Golden Dreamland”. To gain access to the chest, you must first pull it out of the sand using any Anemo ability.
After that, climb up the right column to the upper ledge. At the far end of the ledge, you will see a regular chest, which is also covered with sand. Develop it with the Anemo ability and take the treasure.
Fairy and stacks of stones with mora
Climb the stairs, enter the corridor and immediately turn left. There, click on the stack of stones for 10,000 mora. Keep going forward and interact with another cube. Then follow the fairy if you didn't during the quest. Having turned into another corridor, look to the right into the corner. There you will see a pile of sand – scatter it to inspect the cobblestones later and get another 10,000 mora.
After reaching the area with fire traps, wait until they work, and then run behind them in a zigzag. Keep running after the fairy. When she stands next to the plinth, a regular chest will appear.
The first main hall, elevator and dendroculus
Climb the stairs and enter a spacious hall with 2 statues of jackals (anubis ). Deal with the robot and go to the left corner of the room. There is a lift there. A dendrocule hangs above it, but you probably already collected it when you first visited the ruins.
Torch puzzle, fairy and tablet
Use the elevator to go down. Here you will find a puzzle with torches, which we talked about in the Lost in the Sands quest guide. There we also showed you how to bring the fairy to the plinth and get the Tablet: Valley.
Cage and torch puzzle in the second main hall
Return to the room with the pedestal of secret rites – interact with it to call the elevator. Climb up on it, collecting the 2nd Dendroculus along the way. You will find yourself in a spacious room with two elevators, a rich chest, torches and a 3rd dendrocule hovering above a moving slab.
To unlock the chest, you will need to solve a puzzle. First of all, pick up the primordial luminary, and then take it to the blue platform so that the cage of truth arises. Tap it and a golden triangle will appear above your head.
Now approach the first phantom torch between the two elevators to manifest it, and light any Pyro with an attack. Go to the second torch behind the chest and set it on fire as well.
The third ghostly torch is located to the right of the chest (it will appear when you get close to it) – manifest it with cell power, and then attack with fire. The last phantom torch is on the left side of the chest. Restore it and then light it up. As a result, the protection from the chest will fall, and you will be able to take its contents.
You can then pick up a Mysterious Page from A Thousand Nights ”, lying at the foot of the statue.
How to open a luxurious chest
After solving the puzzle, use the 3rd elevator and go down. Ahead will be the first primordial spark – swipe it to unlock and start following it. Go down the corridor, take the 4th elevator (shown on the map below) and go upstairs.
Climbing up, you will see two Primordial Torches and a Luxurious Chest on the left. After activating one of the columns, turn right, interact with the pedestal and unlock the door. There will be a second primordial spark and a sand pile (there is nothing in it). On the right is a dendroculus.
After collecting the Dendro Orb, unlock the spark and bring it to to the second torch. You will now be able to claim the contents of the Luxury Chest.
Fairy puzzle and tablet
Return to the hallway where you picked up the Dendroculus a little earlier and go down the stairs to the spacious room with a fairy and a locked chest. Approach the spirit, and it will immediately fly down. Activate the 5th elevator to get to the lower level. Keep running after the fairy, climbing up the stairs.
Then take the fairy to the 6th elevator, but don't get on it yet. Instead, take a few steps back and look at the side wall near the roots – you will see a bunch of red cobblestones. Break it open (the quickest way to do this is with Geo abilities or a two-handed sword) to open a short route to the second main hall. Now you can take the elevator.
After getting up, interact with the stack of stones for 10,000 pestilence, then run after the fairy and bring her to the house. As a result, an ordinary chest will appear. Nearby is also Tablet: Valley.
First Primordial Spark Puzzle (Obelisk)
Open a few doors on the left by interacting with the blue switch on the wall, and then unlock the Primordial Spark on the right side. Start leading her through the corridor and turn left. Use the plinth to open the door and enter the hall with the Tablet: Ruler's Authority and the Primordial Obelisk (after restoring it, you will be given a precious chest).
Accompany the spark to the pillar on the side of the entrance. As a result, you will get a normal chest.
Second Primordial Spark Riddle (Tablet)
Return to the very first hall with two jackal statues and the 1st elevator. Upon entering it, immediately turn right and pick up the Scarab. Then turn left and you will see the 7th elevator, which you need to unlock by interacting with the ritual console.
Climb down on the elevator and you will immediately see a primordial spark – activate it and start running after it. On the way, touch a pile of stones for 15,000 mora. Bring the spark to the column (an ordinary chest will appear), to the left of which lies the Tablet: Bird's Head.
Primordial Construct: Shaper and Sparkle Part
Then turn around and use the 8th elevator to go upstairs to the room with the Shaper mini-boss. Deal with this enemy to get a sparkling part and unlock a rich chest.
Primal Constructions and Rich Chest
< p>Use the 5th and 6th elevators again to return to the room with the original obelisk. Then turn left and jump down the hole. Don't forget to unfold the glider, as your character won't survive a fall from that height. Once downstairs, deal with the pristine structures to unlock another rich chest.
Third Riddle with Primordial Spark
Turn left and you'll see a Primordial Spark on a candlestick. Unlock it and start leading past the fire traps along the corridor. Turn right, and the cube will immediately fly into the torch. As a reward, you will receive a regular chest.
Next, use the 9th elevator to return to the second main hall, where there was a puzzle with torches. You don't have to go back here, but now you know where this elevator leads.
The path to the huge obelisk
Move to the teleport near the exit from the ruins, shown in the screenshots below. Turn around and enter the Abju Road from the other end. Go down the tunnel and turn right at the fork. Start climbing up and open the door by pressing the blue button. Go through the corridor, dealing with molds, and unlock the second door. As a result, you will fall into one of three huge obelisks. You can read more about passing the challenge in this area in our other guide.
Amazing chest, tablet and dendroculus
Go back to the fork and now turn left and down. Enter the ruins and move forward. Soon you will come to a spacious area with a statue of a jackal and a pristine structure. Deal with the enemy, then examine the amazing chest and pick up the Tablet: Giant Serpent.
Next, turn into the right passage and turn off almost immediately to the left. You will find yourself in a corridor with a fire trap. Near the turret, turn left to the jackal statue. Right above the animal's head you will see a Dendroculus.
As a result, you will completely clear the Abju Road in Genshin Impact, finding all the chests, dendrocules, tablets, primordial sparks and other valuable items in these ruins.
