Egypt : Lower and Central Courts - Hatshepsut's Temple Plan - Deir El Bahri - Part II

Hatshepsut Temple (Deir El-Bahri)Luxor, Egypt: We ascend the temple of Deir el Bahri from the lower court where two colonnades have been restored. These comprise twenty-two columns on each side arranged in double rows. In the southern colonnade is a scene showing two obelisks being transported by water (those Hatshepsut had erected at Karnak). The first row shows them on the deck of the barge and below a trumpeter leads a group of archers to the inauguration ceremony.
Passing between the two colonnades we come to the central court (Plan 12 A), which leads to the upper terrace. We are now faced with two famous colonnades. On the left (B) is the Colonnade of the Expedition to Punt. On the right (C) is the Birth Colonnade.
