The Cursed Palace (which was called the Heliopolis Palace) was the home of the Pharaoh of Heliopolis. Shortly after the takeover of Set, Anubis cast a spell on almost all of the inhabitants of Heliopolis that turned them into stone. Gradually, Anubis granted Sphinx colorful Curse Stones to free them. The Pharaoh of Heliopolis was revealed to be extremely corrupt, becoming the giant Pharaoh Spider. In his confrontation with Sphinx, he was killed.
The palace was located in the self-named desert in Heliopolis. It was a sandy colored building with a frontal ramp up to the entrance. A long hall was located inside, and there were three doors: one to the left, one in the center, and one to the right. The center door was guarded by the Pharaoh's Guards, and it could not be accessed until they were free and until Sphinx had the Royal Invitation. Beyond the doors was the Pharaoh's room, which featured a large throne and an underground passageway.
