The Great Hypostyle Hall is one of the most spectacular monuments of ancient Egypt. Possibly begun by Amenophis III, this veritable forest of soaring pillars was continued by Seti I and finished by Ramses II. Covering an area of 7,200 square yards, it is large enough to contain Notre Dame Cathedral.
