That place...began from the resonance of intersecting points... They are memories replaced by ens and naught and etched into stone. Blood, young sprouts, sky - and the one with the ability to control beings created from light... In that world, it is said that if one should wish it, one can bring back the souls of the dead. But to trespass upon that land is strictly forbidden...

–Lord Emon

The Forbidden Lands (Japanese: 禁断の地 kindan no ji; also 古えの地 inishie no ji, lit. "land of the ancient times") are a vast expanse of open plains, narrow passages, large deserts, and thick forests. It is the setting for Shadow of the Colossus, and almost all of it is open to explore right at the beginning of the game. The sixteen colossi, the physical manifestations of the sixteen pieces of Dormin, are dispersed throughout; the Ancient Sword is used as a compass in sunlit areas to point the way to the next colossus.

The Shrine of Worship sits in the center of of the Forbidden Lands. The only way to reach it - to reach the Forbidden Lands at all - is by a long, thin bridge that extends from the Shrine all the way to an adorned entrance at the top of the northern cliffs. The Forbidden Lands has many unique and varied locations. Some are rugged and harsh, while others are lush and beautiful. Certain areas are home to the colossi and can be hard to navigate. Lakes, rivers, deserts, forests, mountains, plains, and the ruins of an ancient civilization are just some examples of the landscape.
