Horus Temple : The Inner Sanctum

The Inner Sanctum

The visual impact of seeing even a replica of the Wooden Sacred Barque of the God Horus in its home, standing before the Golden Statue of the Granite God’s Home, and in situ; where it would have been kept by the Ancient Egyptians for thousands of years, is outstanding. This room is lit by 3 openings in its roof which only adds to the atmosphere which the Ancient Egyptians builders would have been looking to emanate.
