Battle scenes on Second Pylon in Second Court, Main Temple

Second Pylon Information

This stately entranceway is smaller in size and stature than the first pylon, however it adds to the processional ritual of walking sequentially on axis through the temple rooms. The second pylon also contains texts and reliefs depicting the Battle of Kadesh between the Egyptians and the Hittites as a moment of military glory.
