The Heart Shrine as it naturally appeared in-game (the left torch was re-placed by the player; both torches are attached to the Snow Blocks on generation).
The Heart Shrine as it appeared on the map.

A Heart Shrine was an exclusive structure that occasionally generated in the Snow biome. Heart Shrines were roughly heart-shaped caves that contained two guaranteed Crystal Hearts, along with a Frozen Chest that contained several heart-themed items. They could spawn regardless of depth, allowing them to spawn on the surface. They were commonly found in the Ice biome and rarely in the Corruption/Crimson if a Snow biome was generated on top of it. The map showed the heart shape of a Heart Shrine by coloring the top half and a small bit of the outline red.



  • Heart Shrines were removed in the Mobile update, no longer generating in newly created worlds. However, they still exist in worlds created prior to that update.


  • Heart Shrines were the only pre-Hardmode means of obtaining an Ice Chest.
  • The chest would always contain a total of 69 Copper Coins. Due to the overall love theme of the shrine, this is most likely a reference to 69, a well-known sex position.
