Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project



The Temple of Amun at Luxor. First Court looking to the southwest from the porch of the shrine of Hatshepsut. Visible to the right are bases of the papyriform pillars of the shrine which Queen Hatshepsut (c. 1504 B.C.) built before the earlier Luxor Temple as a way-station for the gods' barks during the processions of the Opet Feast. Thereafter, the temple was rebuilt by Amenhotep III (c. 1386 B.C.). When Ramesses II (c. 1279 B.C.) built the courtyard, he enclosed the shrine therein. (Caption - Peter Piccione)
