Proceed to the Soryotanog Shrine situated at the top of the Throne room. Directly behind the shrine, you will find three tall stone pillars/towers in the distance.
Glide to the first tower. Combine a weapon with a rock to create a hammer, then use it to break the breakable floor. This will uncover a mirror that emits a beam of light. Trace the path of the light beam deeper into the desert to discover the next tower.
As you follow the beam of light, you will arrive at the second platform with three pillars. Climb onto a nearby rock and utilize the Ultrahand to rotate the large wheel at the top counterclockwise until the tower reflects the beam of light.
Continue to follow the new beam of light leading to the third tower. Utilize a nearby gust of wind to reach the tower’s summit and subsequently break its floor. This will reveal two green stones (platform) and four wooden sticks. Utilize the Ultrahand to connect at least one of the wooden sticks to a platform.
Hit the stones to activate the battery and elevate the platform to a higher position. This will keep the platform suspended in the air regardless of its placement.
Climb the pillar to reach the balcony, then use the Ultrahand to retrieve the stones. Allow the battery to recharge fully. Once they are fully recharged, lift them again to transfer them to the top of the tower.
Join a wooden stick to the wheel located atop the tower and rotate it until a cutscene.
At this point, all three towers are mutually illuminating in a triangular formation and a new altar appears. Interact with the altar to raise the Lightning Temple from the sand.
