18. Make appropriate diagrammatic drawings to describe the Temple of Hatshepsut’s spatial division in relation to its surroundings. Queen Hatshepsut’s temple complex epitomizes the monumental rock tomb. The temple consists of a tri-partite division of spaces. The temple complex forms a microcosm of nature. Nature in a sense is welded to the temple. The building and its surrounds are thought as in unison. 19. Comment on the most obvious difference the Temple of Hatshepsut makes with the Temple of Karnak. The most obvious difference between the Temple of Hatshepsut and the Temple of Karnak is that the Temple of Hatshepsut is a rock tomb while the Temple at Karnak is freestanding, larger, and a normal temple complex.

20. Using diagrams, describe the main sequence of space and movement in a temple of the New Kingdom. The spatial organization of the temples of the New Kingdom demonstrates a tri- partite division. The first being the inner sanctuary, following the hypostyle hall, and then is an outer forecourt. In sequential order, the typical New Kingdom Temple consisted of an avenue of sphinxes, obelisks and statues of the pharaoh leading to the main temple. The pylon was the main entrance to the temple, following the ceremonial court yard and hypostyle hall. Finally, towards the back end of the temple there was an inner sanctum where the pharaoh was interred. Each space gradually becomes lower, narrower, darker, and more private as you get deeper in the temple.
