abusimbel_23.jpg
Right view of the hall with Osirian Pillars.

Measuring some 16 metres in width and 18 metres in length, contains 2 rows of 4 massive square pillars, each fronted by a 9 metres tall figure of the king in Osiride posture. The ceiling is decorated with vultures. The walls of this hall bear scenes of the king fighting Nubians, Hittites and Syrians, crowned by his alleged victory in the Battle of Kadesh.

A doorway in the back of the hall leads to the innermost chamber, the sanctuary.
