The temple was build by Seti
I in dedication of God Amun-Re
and his father, Ramesses
I, who died too early before building his own mortuary
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 portico
which still has 9 papyriform columns. A central doorway takes
you to the hypostyle
hall that has two sets of 3 columns on each of its sides.
From the Hypostyle Hall there are accesses to a chapel dedicated
to Ramesses I, and court dedicated to the sun cult and finally
to the sanctuary (See Image 2).
To the north side of the temple there are magazines reserved
for stuffs of the temple.
