The temple is built L there and not endowed with an axis rectilinear as the tradition wants it. The big originality of this temple comes because seven divinities could be liked in separate chapels there. The chapel of Osiris serves several rooms said osirien Complex with three other small chapels. To the left of the chapel of Sety I, a door allowed to reach complex Nefertoum Sokar where we can see the famous scenes of Isis fertilized by resuscitated Osiris.
