Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project
The Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III (ca. 1182 B.C.) at Medinet Habu. Second
court, western colonnade. View is to the northeast looking up the aisle.
The colonnade forms a portico before the door of the hypostyle hall (located
left of the viewer). The square columns were once abutted by osiriform
statues of Ramesses III, many of which were removed in late antiquity to
accommodate building of a Christian church in the court.
