The lovation of the levels is the famous temple complex in Cambodia of the same name. Angkor Wat was built as the main temple and capital city of the Khmer kingdom in Cambodia under King Suryavarman II in the early twelth century.
The level consists of a long, obstacle filled passageway that leads to a large room that is mostly taken up by a pool of water. From here, the player proceeds to an outdoor area and a series of gates and seals. Finally, there is the Garden of the Five Towers, where Lara will choose either the Route of the Virtuous or the Path of the Heretical, depending on the number of Golden Skulls that she has picked up along the way.
In the year 1984, at the age of 16, Lara journeyed with her mentor Werner Von Croy to Cambodia to explore the ancient temples of Angkor Wat. Werner guides his pupil through the first part of the archaeological site and then challenges her to a race.
The FMV cutscene in the beginning of the level shows Werner Von Croy breaking through a wall of stone, letting some light into the depths of the dark ruins of the temples of Angkor Wat. Werner then leaps through the new entrance of the temple ruins, yelping a bit as he goes.
Werner is inside the ruins, he keeps observing the surroundings and pondering a bit of the current situation.
- Werner: And so, we've reached the sanctum of the ancients. The first footfalls in the tomb for centuries.
Soon we see the young Lara, appearing from behind Werner's back. She keeps turning around, looking curiously around her.
- Lara: This place gives me the creeps. After you...
Werner has sent Lara to crawl through a crawlspace to open a huge, round gate. Lara crawls through the tunnels and enters a small room with the remains of another unlucky archaeologist. The skeleton has its hold on a backpack, which Lara takes for herself.
- Follow the instructions given to you by Werner and get to know Lara's movements and abilities
