"When a man is faced with his own death, he finds the impossible less than a barrier."
—The Prince[1]

The Hourglass Chamber is located within the Fortress of Time.


The Hourglass Chamber is protected by many traps, and is located right outside the fortress's throne room. When the prince first enters, he finds Kaileena coming down a ladder. She tells the prince that this place is "dangerous and that he should not have come back".[1]

Kaileena explains to the prince the empress will create the sands of time in the sealed throne room once the last grain falls from the hourglass. The prince demands that she tell him how to open the door, so he can prevent the creation of the sands. Kaileena goes on to say that he would have to activate the two towers of the castle and gives him the Serpent Sword to gain access to them.

The Maharajah

The Maharajah of India traveled to the Island of Time long before the prince and stole many relics of time. One of them being the hourglass in this chamber.[1]
