This was a large open courtyard above the Cliffs of Lahkesis. It was part of the Gardens of Lahkesis. A bunch of skeletons hang from above the courtyard on chains and large vases line the sides. A pool of water/fountain is in the center. After Kratos enters this courtyard and takes out several Rabid Hounds,he takes a dead body to gain access to a pressure plate and the door it activates, then descending into a lower area to continue his journey to the Temple of Lahkesis.
