Senusret I (1971-1926 BCE, Middle Kingdom of Egypt) is responsible for the White Chapel, a structure significant to archaeologists and scholars for listing all the nomes of the time on it. The White Chapel was destroyed and recycled for use in the Temple of Karnak but restored between 1927-1930 CE and may still be seen today.
