The Grand Gallery features a corbel haloed design and several cut “sockets” spaced at regular intervals along the length of each side of its raised base with a “trench” running along its center length at floor level. What purpose these sockets served is unknown. An antechamber leads from the Grand Gallery to the King’s Chamber.
