"In the northern part of the second court the hall is renowned for the reliefs on its back wall, which represent the imaginery scenes by which Hatshepsut tried to establish her descent from Amun (Amon) and thus her divine right to rule. The hall was extended later in Hatshepsut's reign by adding a small sanctuary for Anubis." [Haeny G., 1997: New K...
