Astronomical Hall Information

Located beyond the Hypostyle Hall, the Astronomical Hall is a smaller hypostyle room with only eight columns and is aligned along the same axis as the court yards, pylons, and hypostyle hall. The ceiling was adorned in night-time constellations and a lunar calendar. Some have believed it to have been a library. It is also a bark shrine depicting the Theban Triad.
