Great Forecourt of the Precinct of Amun-Re, Karnak Temple
Luxor & Karnak
The Great Forecourt is the first space visitors enter at the Karnak Temple complex. [From Wikipedia] First Pylon Construction of the current pylon began in 30th dynasty, but was never totally completed. It is 113m wide and 15m thick. There are large numbers of mud bricks piled up against the inside of the pylon, and these give a clue as to how it was constructed. Forecourt The construction of the original first pylon and Forecourt in the 22nd dynasty enclosed several older structures, and meant that the original avenue of sphinxes had to be moved. Boat Shrines These were built in the time of Seti II, and are dedicated to Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. Kiosk of Taharqa In order to construct this kiosk, the ram-sphinx corridor was removed and the statues moved to the edges of the open court. Only one column remains in place, bearing inscriptions by Taharqa, Psamtik II and Ptolemy IV Philopator.
