- "What is this?! I saw the empress die! She never created the sands! There should be no Dahaka..."
- —The Prince
The Catacombs is located beneath the Fortress of Time.
The Prince's goal was to prevent the Sands of Time from being made, so he would never release them in the timeline. Anyone who opens the Sands of Time, "must die" and the guardian of the timeline, attempts to force the Prince to meet his fate.
The Prince travels to the Island of Time to prevent the empress from creating the Sands. The Prince killed the empress to protect his life, but the death of the empress actually creates the Sands of Time. When the Prince discovers this, it is too late, and the Dahaka still pursues him.
As the Prince is about to leave the island, the Dahaka throws him into the remains of the catacombs, where he finds the mural. The mural explains how the Maharajah used the Mask of the Wraith to cheat death and change his fate. The Prince then escapes the Dahaka, and the catacombs and maneuvers his way through the prison and library, and back to the throne room.
- There is one artwork chest located in the Catacombs.
- The White Glove weapon is hidden in the Catacombs.
