The northern Chapel of
Amun-Re on the 3. Terrace of the Temple Djeser djeseru
The northern Chapel of Amun-Re is a long chamber in the
north-western corner of the Upper Courtyard. The decoration refers
to Amun, the wall opposite to the entrance (see following photo)
shows the ithyphallic Amun embracing Thutmosis II.
The photo shows the northern chapel of Amun-Re who is definitely
depicted in his ithyphallic form (as indicated by the raised arm).
Both side-walls show offering scenes and a ritual run of Hatshepsut (on the left, western wall she is depicted running with
Hp and oar, on the right, eastern wall she is running with vases).
It was here in this chapel where Senenmut let engrave on both
jambs of the doorway the longest version of the privilege that he had been given from Hatshepsut to establish his name on all walls
of Djeser djeseru and other temples of Upper and Lower Egypt.
However, only at the right
jamb remnants have survived (see photo above - the hands raised raised in adoration and
some parts of the head; about 170 cm above the floor; on the right
the gate that closes the chapel) - the only one a tourist can visit
today (just look through the gate!).
