Level and Walkthrough by Kc Laan
January 2013. Lara Croft is on a short vacation in Arabia. She has to pass some time before she sails out on the Endurance to Japan. Until then, she is looking for some excitement and adventure in the area.
Then she spots a building in the distance. She slides down a steep path to a gate. Is this the monastery they told me about? They are very religious and they do not like strangers.
She has to get out of here, or she will miss her trip! So;
Help Lara in finding all the crucifixes to unlock the door back to her freedom again!
Walk forward. The left entrance door will open and you can go in. On the right wall is a jump switch to open the door on the other side. Notice the keyhole on the left. That should open the door to go back to the real world. You must find that key and return to here.
Go through the door.
A cut scene shows a running Monk entering the monastery before closing the entrance door.
Go down the path to the doors. Notice that the path you came is too steep to go back…

On the first floor you notice a balustrade with a pedestal and the car key! A few Monks are working (so far as they are capable of J).

Pull the jump-switch and another door opens.
In the meantime, the Monks have entered the church for practicing their hymns. While jumping from chandelier to chandelier they practice their singing.
After pulling the switch, a door behind the pedestal where you found the cross, opens.
Go down and carefully lower yourself into the opening you just found. You may enter the crypt but there is nothing to find accept some beetles…
