Just inside the 1st Pylon to the right is a rather small relatively unimpressed row of three temples to the Gods Mut, Amon, and Khons. From the roof of Khons, if the stairs are still open, one can get a great shot of the Great Court. Colonnades line the south and north sides of the court, but the most distinctive feature of the Great Court may be the sole remaining column of the Kiosk of Taharqa, which had been built by the 25th dynasty Ethiopian Pharoah, Taharqa.
