They are about 10 stories in height, just like their west-facing counterpart, the Pillars of Shadow. The main entrance is just across from the Stone Cavern Entrance. The pillars also lead to the Celestial Mausoleum.
The first time in the cavern, the main door is locked, with a mural of hieroglyphs, later translated into English by Hayako Sakurai. A device inside the Pillars later opens the mural after the player character uses the Dragon Flute to play the Song of Dragons, which opens the door via an ancient and unknown mechanism that only responds to the Song.
The Pillars of Light are described in your notebook as follows:
- The singing dragons in the area cannot be ridden on, although they seem to be large enough.
- The singing dragons are gone at night, or during guided tours.
- It is very easy to get lost here because it is all symmetrical.
