Luxor Temple

Tu pride flash

The temple is located on the site of an older sanctuary. It was built by Hatshepsut and dedicated to the triad of Amun, Mut and Khons. Amenhotep III enlarged the shrine. The structure was further enlarged by Tutankhamun, Rameses II and Alexander the Great. Arabs later called it Al-Uqsur (The Palaces), giving the place its modern name.
