Continue exploration in Genshin Impact
The traveler finds a team of archaeologists in the Abju Pit and must go with them inside the explored ruins. On the way, you will meet many riddles and opponents that will make it difficult to find the exit.
How to remove sand from the mechanism and open the door
To the right of the closed door, there is a mechanism covered in sand. To clear it and activate it, call Dispel with the power of Anemo.
Go inside. The group will be attacked by an automaton Primordial Construct: Scout, deal with him along with his comrades. Then take the chest on the left and the Tablet: sheep's head on the right.
If you immediately turn left after this room, you will find a stack of stones with mora, but there will be no passage. Move forward straight down the corridor and take the fairy with you. Activate another mechanism to open the door.
Turn right in the next corridor. Go straight until you come across a dead end. In the right corner of the room there will be a new stack of stones with mora inside. When you pick it up, turn left after the spirit.
How to dodge the mechanisms
In the Traveler's room, there will be dangerous mechanisms that scatter red cubes on the ground – upon contact with them, the character takes damage and is set on fire by the Pyro element. You can zigzag after them.
Continue to lead the fairy. She will stand at the pedestal in the next room and give you a regular chest. Go straight up the stairs to the next room. On the way there will be Primordial Construct: Shaper. After defeating him, you will be able to take the locked rich chest at the entrance.
How to solve the puzzle with transparent torches
Move to the left corner – there you will find a Dendrokul hovering above the elevator. Activate the platform below it to go down to the floor below.
There is a puzzle to solve in the hall that opens. There are three normal torches that can be activated by any attack with a Pyro element, and one special one.
To ignite the fourth, wait until it has a triyana seed next to it, then attack it with Electro. Then the plant will make the ghostly object tangible with Truth Pulse. Set fire to the Pyro torch.
If you accidentally burnt the seed of the Pyro triana, then revive it with the Dendro element (Dendro Traveler will do). And then act Electro according to the indicated scheme.

Go down the stairs and bring the fairy to the monument.
