dc.descriptionThe northern wall of the sanctuary, showing where the annals of Tuthmosis III begin (here Tuthmosis III holds the makes cane and the white hedj club in one hand and the sekhem scepter in the other, consecrating the wealth of offering before him on behalf of Amun); Pylon IV, preceded by obelisks, is the façade of the Ipet-sut. This comprises, from the entrance inwards: a hypostyle hall dominated by the remaining obelisk of Hatshepsut; pylons V and VI; a hall with historical reliefs (the 'Annals of Tuthmosis III'); and a granite shrine of Philip Arrhidaeus (reigned 323-316 BCE) containing a 'solar bark' (the ceremonial boat of the sun-god). The sacred shrine of the Middle Kingdom was originally situated in the 'Middle Kingdom Court' behind an earlier version of the bark shrine.
