Seti I, who constructed the greatly embellished sanctuary at Abydos, his delightful tomb in the Valley of the Kings and Karnak's brilliant hypostyle lobby, passed on before this commemoration sanctuary was done, so it was finished by his child Ramses who had a heavier hand.
At the northern end of the Theban necropolis, this sanctuary has a couple of guests, in spite of its beautiful area close to a palm woods. The sanctuary was seriously harmed by surges in 1994 and has been broadly reestablished. The passageway is through a little entryway in the upper east corner of the recreated post like fenced in area divider. The first and second arches and the court are in ruins.
