There is a similar but sadly even more ruined station at Karnak between Pylons VII and VIII dating to the reign of Tuthmosis III. In this case, the material used was "alabaster" rather than sandstone. It is to be regretted that only one such station survives intact (Senusert I's in the Open Air Museum at Karnak) as they are far more elegant than the temples built with pylons etc.

I am so glad that you like the elegance of these little buildings. This one really appealed to me.
