Temple of Seti I (Abydos, Egypt)


Seti I may well be remembered for being the father of Rameses II, arguably the greatest Egyptian pharoah, but his temple in Abydos is considered one of the most beautiful, containing magnificent artwork and beautiful hypostyle halls.

The temple also has an enigmatic hieroglyphic panel that seems to depict objects that look like modern aircraft, one of which has been likened to a helicopter.
