    “The well-preserved ‘house of millions of years’ of Ramesses III was originally surrounded by a small enclosure with a stone pylon at the front. It was later enlarged by the addition of an outer enclosure wall, 18m high, measuring 205×315 m, which gave the sanctuary a fortress-like appearance. A monumental platform on the bank of the canal was followed by the High Gate. A window of appearances opens onto the first court of the temple from the cult palace on the southern side. The main temple building is 150m long, and its plan is largely a copy of the Ramesseum. Two forecourts, decorated with statue pillars of the king, are followed by a hypostyle hall, behind which are chambers for guest gods, an offering chamber and the sanctuary for the barque of Amun. Behind this lie some hidden rooms (perhaps for the mysteries of Amun-Re). To the south of the central axis are the treasuries, a place for the cult of Month and the mortuary cult rooms of Ramesses III, which take the form of an Osiris shrine. On the opposite, north side were the chapels for the king, Ptah, Amun and other gods, a slaughter court for the cult, a shrine to the cult of the sun with stairs to the roof, and a sanctuary for the divine Ennead. The decoration of this temple is impressive, with important remains of colour. The enclosure wall encompasses store houses, barracks with stables for horses, offices, wells, small ponds and gardens. The temple has been studied in an exemplary fashion and is of great significance for the history of construction.”
