The temple was build by Seti I in dedication of God Amun-ReWho is this deity? and his father, Ramesses I, who died too early before building his own mortuary temple.
The temple is generally destroyed but for its inner part which, despite that, still has very good preserved scenes.
The destruction befell on the tomb because its main construction from mud bricks and due to the fact that it was used as a quarry for house builders in the region.

The temple had once two pylons which cannot be seen at all nowadays, and remains of a royal palace to its southern sides.
The notable structure still standing is the porticoWhat does it mean? which still has 9 papyriform columns. A central doorway takes you to the hypostyleWhat does it mean? hall that has two sets of 3 columns on each of its sides.
