FIrst off let's talk about how to get to the door to start this quest. In the North East section of forbidden area around the palace, find these boxes.

Jump from platform to platform, until you are on the roof.

You'll get a cut scene. A mural is on the ground, and four buttons will raise up around it. Here is a picture of the mural. Each button you step on starts a puzzle you have to solve in a certain amount of time. I'll tell you the order of the buttons here.
