This temple is situated in the centre of Luxor and was mainly built by Amenophis III, but the construction that we see now was mainly the work of Ramses II (1279-1213BC) and you can see many statues of him on the throne throughout the temple. Within the complex is a collonade consisting of 14 papyrus columns , each 19 metres tall. The walls are decorated with bas-reliefs showing the feast of Opet and date from the reign of Tutankhamun. (1333-1324BC).
Entrance fee : 35LE (3.50 GBP)
