The most thrilling part of this complex is the Vestibule Colonnade and the Great Hypostyle Hall. Much of the roof remains and the light is sufficient to appreciate the massive amount of color rich reliefs on walls, ceiling, and columns. Here, the military themes definitely give way to more sensitive content that includes Ramses and his family interacting during various ceremonial processions and with the Gods. On the ceiling lintels, the vulture goddess, Nekhebet is a common feature.
