In the captivating world of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, there are secret treasure chests concealed by a character known as The Architect. To gain access to her hidden workshop, you must solve a series of nine hidden chest puzzles scattered across Mount Qaf. Each puzzle presents a unique challenge that will test your intelligence and problem-solving skills.

The Architect, also known as Maryam, is an NPC located deep within the Upper City. To find her, you’ll need to unlock the “Fabric of Time” ability to reach her lair. Once you’ve made it to her, she’ll offer you The Architect side quest that involves solving some intricate puzzles.

The nine hidden chest puzzles are scattered throughout Mount Qaf, each requiring you to use your intelligence and strategic thinking. Upon encountering and solving each puzzle, a marker will be added to your map, indicating progress towards accessing The Architect’s secret room. Let’s explore the solutions for each puzzle on the list below:

Once you’ve successfully solved all nine hidden chest puzzles and claimed all the treasures, you must return to Maryam, the Architect in the Upper City. The final puzzle involves hitting the floating runes in a specific order based on the numbers indicated by the puzzle markers on the map. Once you get the order right, a portal to The Architect’s workshop will magically appear.
