Courtyard
The pylon

Begin your journey in front of the temple. The front of an ancient Egyptian temple was built to look impressive. It was, after all, the home of a god or goddess.

This view is probably as much of the temple as an ordinary ancient Egyptian would ever have seen.

The two blocks that make up the facade are called the pylon. In front of the pylon are two obelisks.

Enter the doorway into the courtyard.
