The Sacred Caves is located within the Fortress of Time.


The Sacred Caves are only accessible by entering the secret passage behind the throne room. The cave is built around the arena, a giant platform that rests in the center of a canal of water. It is here the Prince encounters his final battle to change his fate.

The Prince first travels through to locate the Mask of the Wraith, so he may lure the Empress into the present. While in the past, the Prince encounters the Griffon. The prince defeated the Griffon as the Sand Wraith in the center of the arena.

The Prince returns to the Sacred Caves as his true self to confront his fate. The final battle takes place in the arena with either the Empress or the Dahaka. This all depends if the Prince collected the Water Sword or not.


  • The Sacred caves are where the Prince first combats the Scavenger beasts.
