Hi Eddie. The entrance and with it the ascending passage points to the celestial pole, perhaps Thuban in particular, the pole star during this era. The stars of the celestial pole are referred to in the PT as the "Imperishable Ones".

The causeway leads to the Nile which the mortuary temple (and valley temple) were part of this system.

There are many theories why they did this. Personally I subscribe foremost, though they almost certainly had symbolic functions as well, to practical reasons in that the causeway lead to the Nile for transport and the ascending passage pointed to the celestial pole, a fixed object, to set the construction line.
