Luxor Temple, Luxor: 133 reviews and 309 photos
The Central Chamber of Amun leads into the most sacred parts of the Temple of Luxor. Consisting of several small chapels and chambers, this area is collectively referred to as the Temple of Amun. On either side of the Central Chamber are the chapels of Mut and Khonsu. Beyond is the four-column Offering Chapel, with wall decorations of offerings. Next to it is the Birth Room of Amenhotep III showing scenes of his conception and birth as a child of the gods. Further into the temple is the Barque Shrine, rebuilt by Alexander the Great, who is portrayed in the reliefs as a Pharaoh. The last section and the most sacred of all is the Sanctuary of Amenhotep III, where the statue of Amun made its final stop at the end of the Opet Festival.
