Luxor Temple

Luxor temple was one of the most important cult temples in ancient Egypt. Amenhotep III decided to build a whole temple for the god Amon. Later Ramses II added a new open court, a massive fa├žade representing its entrance, a huge pylon, and two seated statues of the king. The name of the temple in ancient Egyptian was "The House of Amon in the southern holy of hollies," or "The southern Harem." Originally two large obelisks stood in front of the pylon. However, now only one remains, while the other one stands in Place de la Concorde, Paris.
