Ninja Gaiden II Walkthrough THE TEMPLE OF SACRIFICE - Part 2
Fight to the top of the stairs, go through the door up there and drop down and save the game.
Go through the door and kill all the monsters. At the bottom of the stairway are two chests and a scroll next to the next set of stairs.
Once you open the door at the end of the last stairway, you will start the chapter 10 boss fight.
If you are having trouble beating Elizébet, I would suggest using the dragon sword.
