What was once the hypostyle hall of the Temple of Hatshepsut is now an inner courtyard with few of the columns standing. The courtyard is dominated by the towering cliffs above and is flanked by two chapels, one dedicated to Hatshepsut, the other to Thutmosis. The back end of the courtyard contains the rock-cut Sanctuary of Amun, the most sacred part of the temple. This sanctuary is closed to the public.
