The Ante Chambers

Each of the 3 Ante Chambers has a double entrance which leads away from the Inner Hypostyle Hall and to the Inner Sanctum Chapels of the God Horus and the God Sobek.

Through the damage which occurred to the Temple the “secret corridor” can be seen in between the Chambers. This is where the Priests would give the deities a voice in reply to the enquiries of the pilgrims who used to attend the Temple in Greek times.

Each of the 3 rooms gets higher than the previous one. The small rooms on the left-hand side of the Chambers would have been used as storerooms.
