Tomb Raider: Greece: Midas's Palace

There is a big statue at the entrance itself. Its hands are broken and there are four slots around its legs. On one of the slot, a golden bar is fixed and the other slots are empty. The objective of Lara in this area is to find the other three Golden Bars.
There are three doors in that room. Each room has some excellent puzzle and provides Lara with a Lead Bar.

In one of the room, the Lead Bar lies in a large pillar, but is inaccessible. Lara then finds a path underground where the pillar's supports are situated. Lara breaks all the three supports which makes the Lead bar to fall down and breaks the lower part of the pillar. Lara picks up the Lead Bar and goes to the room above and finds that the whole room is collapsed. There, she jumps through the ledges and broken pillars to get some medipacks and also she finds a way, in which lies the level to open one of the three doors at the Midas's Palace.

Another is a Fire Room. This room has a pond at the bottom and is full of pillars spitting fire and some circular platforms which also spit fire at the center. Lara gets a Lead Bar in this room and finds an Artifact, Griffin-Head Protome. Actually, I found the level to get the artifact, which is under the last pillar. The mechanism goes as follows: When the Lara activates the level, the pillar above it rises and the artifact lies inside the pillar at the bottom. After some time, the pillar lowers and hides the artifact under the ground. For me, before Lara reaches there, the pillars gets lowered and I was unable to get that artifact. So, to get this artifact I referred a walkthrough and found that one of the pillar has a ring on it and Lara has to turn the pillar by using grapple on that ring. Then, only Lara gets enough time to reach that Artifact fast.

The last one is a room full of moving pillars with spikes at the top of some pillars. There is a lever on one side, which when activated lifts all the pillars to top. But they goes down fast and Lara have to swiftly jump between the pillars to get the final Lead bar and in a recess in a wall, Lara finds another Artifact, Athenian Owl Figurine.

After getting all the three Lead bars, Lara comes to the main room of Midas's Palace. But, Lara is unable to place the lead bars on the empty slots. The trick is if you place the lead bars on the broken hands of the statue and press activate button, it turns into gold bar. So, convert all the lead bars into gold bars. If by mistake, Lara stands on the hand while activating, she turns into Gold and the game got over. After getting the gold bars, place them in the slots to open the gate under the water in a small pond.

With these, Midas's Palace is completed and then Lara goes to Tomb of Tihocan through the underwater gate that just opened.
