The subject of this Amnesia Wiki article is a real life subject and cannot be edited to the same level of accuracy as the corresponding Wikipedia page. If readers are curious to know more, we recommend exploring the subject of Tin Hinan Tomb further.

The Tin Hinan Tomb was an ancient burial complex, both crypt and temple, where two Orbs resided, in the sandy Algerian desert. Its location was hinted at Daniel's diary, unearthed by Herbert's expedition, and later visited by Tasi Trianon.[1] It is featured as part of a level in Amnesia: The Dark Descent and multiple levels in Amnesia: Rebirth.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent[]

This ancient tomb apparently rested in the deserts of Algeria. While initially dated to the 4th century, at the time of its excavation, it was revealed that the ruins were much older, according to Daniel in his 17th May diary entry. The tomb was presumably built by the ancient settlers as a monument of sorts to Tin Hinan, also known as "The Mother of Us All."

Most of the interior of the tomb was inaccessible, as it had crumbled into piles of ruins. It has humanoid statues in praying position, their gaze fixed at the dark domed ceiling, which may represent the followers of Mithraism. At the end of the hallway lies a room protected by a massive stone slab.

The interior of the tomb is never fully revealed, but the area of the burial chamber is seen in a flashback that Daniel has when he finally reads all 3 notes found in the Archives level.

Amnesia: Rebirth[]

The tomb was revisited in Amnesia: The Dark Descent.


  • In Daniel's flashback, there is only one Orb shown for him to interact. However, Herbert's journal reveals that the tomb has two Orbs, meaning that there may actually be two separate Orb chambers.
  • In Amnesia: Rebirth, at least 50 mummies (Tin Hinan among them) and 46 skulls can be found here.
