The Kakariko Graveyard is located next to Kakariko Village, and is where many important people are buried, such as members of the Royal Family, or Rutela, the Zora Queen in Twilight Princess. In Ocarina of Time, it is home to Dampe the Gravekeeper and the Shadow Temple. This is the first place you need to go once you have obtained the Master Sword. As an adult, Dampe is dead, but you can still race his ghost inside his grave, and if you are successful, he will reward you with the Hookshot, which will pull you towards most wooden objects and a few enemies or targets to be able to reach higher places. You can also learn the Sun's Song in the Royal Family's tomb. The Shadow Temple can only be reached by playing the Nocturne of Shadow.
