The photo above shows the upper terrace seen from the rock cliff
above. In comparison with the ground plan the photo is turned
clockwise by 180° (the photo is a gift of Anke
and Ralf Klein, 2003).
At the left side a part of the Sun Altar with its vestibule (please
note the column in the corner) is shown. Next to the right the photo
shows the upper
courtyard with the remains of its columns, the granite gate leading to
the 3rd portico (above) and the entrance to the main sanctuary with
its columns and intercolumnar walls. At the right side - from top to
bottom - the following rooms are shown: the room with the window, the vestibule in front of the chapels of
Hatshepsut und Thutmosis I. Behind the chapel of Thutmosis I lies the southern Chapel of Amun-Ra. In the right upper corner
of the photo shows the columns
of the portico of the Chapel of Hathor (2nd portico).
