Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project
The Temple of Amun at Karnak. South Pillared Court before the Sixth Pylon,
built by King Thutmose III (c. 1504-1450 B.C.). Ahead (looking eastward) is
the ruined wall of the southern extension of the Sixth Pylon, western face.
It is inscribed with horizontal inscriptions of Kings Seti II and Ramesses
III. In the foreground, the column-bases and remains of sixteen-sided
columns indicate that a colonnade once stood in this courtyard. The fallen
osiriform statue of King Sesostris I (c. 1971 B.C.) was discovered in the
foundations of the court during excavations.
