The Hypostyle Hall is found after the Second Pylon and is popularly known as the world’s largest and architectural masterpieces. After seeing this particular area, one can be sure for the intentions of the builders with the lightning effects. The columns, beams, ceilings and walls are painted with the most natural earthy colors. The light that was allowed in created artistic shadows. There are twelve columns made of papyrus and total of hall ceiling height is 82 feet. The reliefs in the hall contain the symbolism of Creation. The northern part of the reliefs are from the era of Seti I and are of more better quality than the reliefs that were made by his son Ramesses II which lies at the southern half. The Ramesse II reliefs are cut much deeper creating a creative and dramatic shadowy plus light effect.
