All Sand Jar Locations – Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

Find all the Sand Jars and uncover the prophecy of Mount Qaf with this quick guide!

During your travels through Mount Qaf, you’ll eventually come across mysterious sand jars. Destroy these jars and prophecy written in the walls of the mountain will slowly be revealed. With 30 jars to find, the hunt for them may prove tedious. If you’re struggling to find the last few jars you need or want a list to mark off while hunting them then have no fear. In this guide, we’ll go over every sand jar location.

Starting the Prophecy of Mount Qaf side quest

To start the Prophecy of Mount Qaf side quest you need to go to the room east of the Haven and destroy the sand jar in the middle of the room. After this, our hunt for the jars can begin in earnest. 

One thing to take note of is that some sand jars might be locked behind story progression. If it seems impossible to get to one of the locations, there’s a good chance you’re missing the necessary ability to reach it. If that happens, drop a memory dhar and come back later.

Lower City

The Lower City has four sand jars hidden around the area:

One jar can be found directly west of the prophecy chamber past a bunch of spinning blades and wall traps. After sliding down a long wall covered in spikes, wall-hop up when the path splits to get the sand jar.

Another jar can be grabbed west of the Haven in the area past the giant multi-armed statue. Follow the path on the middle set of arms into a room with floor spikes. Continue until the path splits and take the lower path to find the sand jar.

The third sand jar can be found near the area where you first fought the cursed soldiers at the beginning of the game. There should be a path heading down with a glowing wall. Use Dimensional Claw to destroy it with an explosive barrel and traverse the maze beyond.

The sand jar can be found past a small passage on the right side of the area (above the level with two tiger enemies on it), and destroy the barrier.

The last jar in the Lower City can be found outside the prophecy room if you continue down through the floor gate. Follow the stairs and use Shadow of the Simurgh to teleport to your chakram after you throw it through the closed gate on the left. Head right once you jump down and you’ll find the sand jar guarded by flying animals.

To find the last sand jar, head west from the Wak-Wak tree connecting the Catacombs section of the Depths and the Sunken Harbor (where the entrance to the Pit of Eternal Sands is).

Keep going till you hit a large room with a ghost-like enemy that blinks in and out of reality. Head to the left and there should be an alcove you can slide into to find the sand jar.

A third sand jar can be found southeast of the Wak-Wak tree near the connecting point between the Sacred Archives and the Upper City. Use Clairvoyance to traverse the area and dodge the flaming skulls and eventually, you’ll reach the sand jar.

One can be found in the area above the Sealed Lair Fast Travel point. Head west and you’ll find the jar behind a secret wall (right next to the Wak-Wak trail leading down).

Another one can be found west of the Sealed Lair Fast Travel Point in the second room with the giant crystal-eating sandworms. Head to the top-left of the area and you should find it.

The final sand jar can’t be found directly above the Sentinel’s Road Fast Travel point. To get it you must wall hop off the wall free of crystals and use Shadow of the Simurgh to drop a shadow at the apex of your jump. Then you need to dash over the platform covered in spikes to trigger a falling block.

Once the block falls, return to your shadow and dash to your right, dropping another shadow immediately after clearing the pile of spikes sticking up. Fall until you trigger the next trap block and return to your shadow, using the block as a bridge to reach the jar.

Another can be found further east from the last jar in an area with falling ice chunks. Follow the area until you pass the coffin-carrying enemy. Drop down the area where the ice chunks are falling and destroy the false wall on the left side of the narrow area to find the jar.

The last jar can be found in the area southeast of the fourth Architect Puzzle in the room with more falling ice chunks. Head to the lower right area of the map and follow the path.
