How To Complete The Three Gongs Puzzle

In order to complete the three gongs puzzle, players will have to slam the three gongs spread throughout the Tower of Silence. 

The three different places have a gong that you would need to slam, but it isn’t that simple. First of all, finding the three places is hard on its own. Secondly, each of the places features a battle, and none of them features an easy fight. So, you would need to be fully prepared before slamming each gong.  

The First Gong

The first gong is just above you, so use the Fabric of Time Power and simply head up. 

After that, follow these steps: 

  1. You can restore the time travel machine first but then head to the platform just below u.
  2. You will notice a small space between the left wall, so slide in there.
  3. As soon as you enter the room, an enemy will spawn. 
  4. He is a troublesome foe, so don’t let it hit you.
  5. After you defeat the first one, another one will spawn.
  6. Defeat him, too, and then the area will unlock.
  7. Then, simply slam the gong, and one-third of the quest is already done.

  8. You have now done the simplest one, as the next two will give you some trouble. 

The Second Gong

You will have to go through some tricky platforms in order to do the second puzzle. After completing the first one, head down to Wak Wak Tree and heal yourself.

After that, follow these steps to complete the second part of the Three Gongs Puzzle in Prince of Persia The Lost Crown:

  1. On the right side of the Wak Wak Tree, you will notice a different area.

My Experience With The Three Gongs Puzzle

The Three Gongs Puzzle was difficult and time-consuming, so it took me a while to complete it.

The first one was pretty easy, but that was just bait to make players think the Three Gongs Puzzle would be easy. The other two areas were pretty far away and featured tough fights. However, it is an end-game puzzle, so the difficulty is justified. 

That is almost everything you would want to know about The Three Gongs Puzzle In Prince of Persia The Lost Crown.
