Our first stop today is the Mortuary Temple of Seti I.

 

 

 

 

It still has palms and other plant life throughout the gardens.

The entire court and any pylons associated with it have been destroyed mainly because they were made from mudbrick, and exposed to the annual flooding of the Nile and are now buried under the modern town to the east.

Like his Abdjw temple, Seti I never finished his own construction.

 

Seti I only ruled for about 10 years, perhaps due to his rare condition of having his heart on the right side of his body.

His son, Ramses II made sure that his father’s sprawling vision was realized.
