Bull hall 


Just after the list of the kings in the passageway of the annals, the first door drives to this hall where is represented the famous scene of bull hunt with Ramesses II and his son.  This room has been decorated entirely by Ramesses II. This hall opens on a stair that leads to the exit toward the Osireion and the Temple of Ramesses II.
