Modern name for the site of the mortuary temple of Ramesses IIon the west bank of the Nile opposite Thebes near Deir el-Bahri. Originally named Hnm-W3st. The temple is noted for its fallen colossal statue of the king, which inspired the poetic work of Percy Bysshe Shelley. The inscriptions also detail the royal children and the king’s wars. The site was excavated by British archaeologist John Quibell in 1896. AFranco–Egyptian team has been in charge of the publication and excavation of the temple since the 1970s.
