Shrines are basically mini-dungeons in Tears of the Kingdom, which test your creativity and puzzle-solving skills. Mayachin Shrine has two giant bullseyes attached to the wall, and you have to hit them with a ball using a DIY flipper or bat. The ball constantly rotates around the room, so correctly timing the strike is necessary.
