I am trying to become Thane of Haafingar hold/ Solitude.

I cleared out Wolfskull cave, Elisif asked me to take her Husband's War Horn to a shrine of Talos. It shows up as a Misc Journal entry.

Where is this shrine?

I tried taking it to the shrine in Whiterun where the priest was always yelling. No luck, no options to leave the horn there.

I tried following this Guide, I kept and kept on searching. Nothing between north of ritual stone or east of Whiterun resembles what they are talking about. But it is a radiant quest so I think that information might be dated.

This guide says to go to the appropriate shrine.

Our very own guide has no such mention, meaning it should be an easy do.

I have been wandering looking for this shrine for almost 2 hours now real time.

Which shrine of Talos do I need to drop the horn? And more importantly where is it/ How to find it?

Have you tried clicking the quest to activate it, then pressing M to have it show you the quest on the map? It should lead you right there. – bwarner Dec 10 '11 at 20:02
Make sure the quest is active in Miscellaneous, and make sure that Miscellaneous is active itself. Then you should see a map marker for it. For me, I was standing on top of a rock, supposedly directly at the marker. I was confused, annoyed, and decided to drop down from the rock and move on. I dropped down to discover that the rock was the top of a small cave. Inside the cave was the shrine. Too easy. – Thaumajig Dec 10 '11 at 22:28
Miscellaneous is active, how to make a quest within miscellaneous active? – ヴァイシャリ Dec 11 '11 at 0:20
You can activate-click them in the miscellaneous list, too. – ordag Dec 11 '11 at 10:08
@ordag I am on PC. I open J my journal, navigate to Miscellaneous, if I press E key the Miscellaneous quests are activated. But can not activate the quests in my Miscellaneous tab. – ヴァイシャリ Dec 11 '11 at 10:59

It's very hard to find, and the shrine doesn't have its own world marker, but it's there, east of Whiterun under a ledge:

+1 for the great directions. I still do not see it. Followed the whole river, and paid special attention to your map. Can not find it still. – ヴァイシャリ Dec 11 '11 at 2:22
Trying it now. Wish I can upvote more. You do deserve it for all your effort. – ヴァイシャリ Dec 11 '11 at 12:12
I found it so easy to find thanks to your instructions man ... cheers – user16491 Dec 14 '11 at 23:50
It may not have a world marker, but it does have a quest indicator. – Raven Dreamer Dec 15 '11 at 0:46
@ordag Finally found it when I had stopped looking. Based on your directions I knew where it was. I was doing a different quest and finally found it. – ヴァイシャリ Dec 15 '11 at 10:16
