Alamut is the city and home of Tamina in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.


Alamut is a desert city, underneath lies the ancient force of the Sands of Time. The mighty Persians (led by prince Tus, Garsiv, Nizam and Dastan) invaded it because it was believed to be a seller of weapons to the enemies of Persia. It is said that Alamut is a city that has wealth and beauty like no other city can level, it can be found in the heart of the desert in the Persian borderlands.

Alamut contains the Eastern Palace, the High Tower (where the tabernacle holding the Dagger of Time is found) and the Princess' Chambers. Even though the city has no weapon forges, Persia's Nobleman Nizam lied about it just to get the dagger and destroying the city.
