Karnak Chapel Amenhotep 1 EG074906jhp 
 Egyptian hieroglyphs Karnak Amenhotep Alabaster Chapel Museum detail cartouche Horus was one of the original exhibits in the Open Air Museum in the Karnak complex on the East Bank of the Nile at Luxor. It is not usually part of the standard tour package so has to be entered ‘privately’ and an additional ticket purchased on entry, accessed from the First Forecourt through the eastern gate past the famous standing statue of Ramses 11. Passing through an area full of stored blocks rescued from other parts of the Karnak site, you can view restored chapels including this one of Amenhotep 1 alabaster barque chapel of whom little is recorded, who ruled around 1550-24BC and although his mummy was found in the 1881 royal mummy cache but this beautiful small chapel is one delightful reminder of his 25 year reign. There is another alabaster chapel from the reign of Thutmosis 1V, the exquisite White Chapel of Senwosret 1, the Chapelle Rouge of Hatshepsut and a recent larger addition is the reconstruction of Thutmosis IV [Thutmose] Festival Court for a quiet, contemplative and beautiful experience to the busy main Karnak tour.
