Introduction


The limestone chapel of Amenhotep I was a replica of the “white chapel” of Middle Kingdom king Senusret I. The chapel was almost identical in size and design to the earlier “white chapel.” Both may originally have stood to the west of the temple precinct.
Measurements: Each of the columns measure 2.56m in height and are approximately 0.6m across and 0.6m deep. The platform on which the columns rest is 1.18m high and 6.80m by 6.45m.

Phases of Construction

Amenhotep I

The chapel may have served as a statue shrine or portable bark shrine for the image of Amun-Ra or the king. The chapel seems to have remained standing long enough to be incorporated into the “festival hall” of king Thutmose II.

Construction materials: limestone

About the reconstruction model of Amenhotep I

Because the chapel of Amenhotep I was a copy of the Middle Kingdom Senusret I “white chapel,” the dimensions of the “white chapel” were used to create a model of the Amenhotep chapel.

A plain limestone pattern was used to recreate the chapel’s stone color.

Destruction: Amenhotep III

When Amenhotep III decided to construct the third pylon, he dismantled all the chapels within the “festival court” of Thutmose II. Amenhotep’s limestone chapel was used as building fill within the new pylon.
