Question for Tomb Raider: Legend

I'm new with this game and I can't get past the first level. I'm still going through the tomb looking for the stone dais. How do I get to the stone? Or at least past the big room with 3 buttons that have to be pushed in order to open the door? Thank you

I presume this is the cage puzzle, with the leopard/

You should see three cages, one as soon as you go in the room, one under a huge rock, and one near the leopard.

To satart off, I suggest you walk all the way to the end of the platform and kill the leopard from above. The jump down from the platform(to the right) and drag it toward the left hand side, next to the other cage under the see-saw thing.

Then take the cage from under the see-saw rock, and drag it so half of it is on the See-saw, and half off. Then go up to the platform, and you should see a couple of steps at the end of the platform, go up them, and jump on the other end of the see-saw, and the cage will fly up onto the platform.

You then do this with the other cage you dragged around here earlier, and you should now have the three cages up the top.

Place all three cages on all three of the pressure pads, and you should see the door open.

To get to this door, you use the chain on the left hand side from where you entered, climb it then jump to the narrow ledge opposite, and you should see where to go from here. The Gold reward is also in the room.

Hope this helps.

From the starting point head to the left until you get the instructions on how to jump, then jump on the ledge and continue up, swim across the pool and climb out then roll the boulder out of the way to the left and jump on to the ledge you have now revealed. Climb the vines and jump to the ledge, then use the rope and jump to the ledge and explore the cave on the left for some stuff then head over to the center one and go behind the waterfall, climb and then follow the path hugging the right side to avoid the boulder that rolls down at you.

Once the boulder rolls past, continue up and then use the poles to swing and jump across, then carefully approach and take out the guard ahead, and then climb or jump up to the ledge with the boulder on it and roll the boulder to the end to raise the opposite end, then use the poles to jump and swing and jump across. Grapple the round door ahead to climb to it and through it.

Take out any guards you encounter and make your way up the ledges, crossing the last one, which will partly collapse with you on it - be sure you jump/grab/grapple the left-hand remaining bits of ledge and continue to the next set of poles, cross and climb,and then use the rope to continue past the waterfall and keep following the path until you encounter the guard who starts shooting at you. Kill him then follow the passage and jump the broken bridge quickly grappling the sign above.

Continue on the path and through the door to trigger the CS, at which point you can throw the rocks here down to kill some of the guards, then slide down and quickly kill two more guards before following the path and killing a third.

Enter the temple and that basically gets you past the part you are stuck at.
