How to enter Gerudo Town Shelter in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK)

A Voe like you shouldn't be here!

Hyrule has changed drastically since my last visit, and I've enjoyed exploring old locations and finding what's new in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. One of these such locations is Gerudo Town, which is now abandoned due to the Sand Shroud, with the Gerudo hiding under the city in the Gerudo Town Shelter. Here's the answer if you're wondering how to enter Gerudo Town Shelter.

Link being a Voe, the guard at Gerudo Town Shelter will block his entrance despite saving their town in the past. If you climb the tower where the throne room is located, Link will find Riju's room below the Shrine. In the room, Link can read Riju's Diary. By reading Riju's diary, Link can learn that there is a secret entrance behind the throne in the throne room. In the throne room, you can use Ultrahand to move the hatch blocking the entrance. The object will respawn like other Ultrahand items.

Lift the hatch and jump down the hole. Link will land in some shallow water and be instantly discovered by the Gerudo. The Gerudo captain will arrive and recognize Link. This will allow access to the Gerudo Town Shelter via the front door.
