Fodor's Review

Seti I's 19th-Dynasty temple is the northernmost of the New Kingdom mortuary temples. Son of Ramses I and father of Ramses II, Seti I was one of the great kings who guaranteed safety inside the country and repelled the attempts of enemies to upset the balance of Egyptian supremacy.

The temple, which is extremely damaged, is dedicated to Amun-Ra, Ramses I, Seti I, and Ramses II (who finished parts of it). Much restoration work has been accomplished, but the remains of the buildings are so poor that only lower parts of the walls were rebuilt. Nine impressive papyrus-bud columns of the peristyle hall, the hypostyle hall, and the sanctuary are the only massive parts of the temple still standing.
