This is the biggest inner courtyard in an Egyptian temple (100m / 80 m), where processions of the sacred barques used to halt under Ramses II.
In the middle of the courtyard, stand the ruins of the Taharqa kiosk. We suppose it was a place where the priests carrying the sacred barques could put them down and rest for a few minutes.
To the south, and thus at your right, is he temple of Ramses III.
And in front of you, the entrance to the splendid Hypostyle Hall, with the huge statue of Ramses II, the only one that remains.
