Luxor Temple

Luxor Temple is a large Ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the east bank of the Nile River in the city today known as Luxor and was constructed 1400 BCE. In the Egyptian language it is known as ipet resyt, "the southern sanctuary". In Luxor there are several great temples on the west banks. Four of the major mortuary temples visited by early travelers include the Temple of Seti I at Gurnah, the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahri, the Temple of Ramesses II, the Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu. Unlike the other temples in Thebes, Luxor temple is not dedicated to a cult god or a deified version of the pharaoh in death. Instead, Luxor temple is dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship. To the rear of the temple are chapels built by Amenhotep III of the 18th Dynasty, Alexander. Other parts of the temple were built by Tutankhamun and Ramesses II. During the Roman era, the temple and its surroundings were a legionary fortress and the home of the Roman government in the area. During the Roman period a chapel inside the Luxor Temple dedicated to goddess Mut was transformed in to a Tetrarchy cult chapel and into a church.

Luxor temple was built with sandstone from the Gebel el-Silsila area, located in South-Western Egypt. This sandstone from the Gebel el-Silsila region is referred to as Nubian Sandstone; this sandstone was used for the construction for monuments in Upper Egypt as well as in the course of past and current restoration works. Like other Egyptian structures a common technique used was illusionism. For example, to the Egyptian, a sanctuary shaped like an Anubis Jackal was Anubis. At the Luxor temple, the two obelisks flanking the entrance were not the same height, but they created the illusion that they were. With the layout of the temple they appear to be of equal height, but using illusionism, it enhances the relative distances hence making them look the same size to the wall behind it. Symbolically, it is a visual and spatial effect to emphasize the heights and distance from the wall, enhancing the existing pathway. From medieval times, the Muslim population of Luxor had settled in and around the temple, at the southward end of the mount.

Due to the Luxor's past city population building on top of and around the Luxor temple, centuries of rubble had accumulated, to the point where there was an artificial hill some 14.5 to 15 metres in height. The Luxor Temple had begun to be excavated by Professor Gaston Maspero after 1884 after he had been given the order to commence operations; the excavations were carried out sporadically until 1960. Over time, accumulated rubbish of the ages had buried three quarters of the temple which contained the courts and colonnades which formed the nucleus of the Arab half of the modern village. Maspero had taken an interest earlier, he had taken over the post of Mariette Pasha to complete the job in 1881. Not only was there rubbish, but there were barracks, houses, pigeon towers, which needed to be removed in order to excavate the site. Maspero received from the Egyptian minister of public works the authorization needed to obtain funds in order to negotiate compensation for the pieces of land covered by the houses and dependencies.

The Luxor Temple was dedicated to the Theban Triad of the cult of the Royal Ka, Amun and Khonsu and was built during the New Kingdom, the focus of the annual Opet Festival, in which a cult statue of Amun was paraded down the Nile from nearby Karnak Temple to stay there for a while, with his consort Mut, in a celebration of fertility – hence its name. However, other studies at the temple by the Epigraphic Survey team present a new interpretation of Luxor and its great annual festival, they have concluded that Luxor is the temple dedicated to the divine Egyptian ruler or, more to the cult of the Royal Ka. Examples of the cult, of the Royal Ka can be seen with the colossal seated figures of the deified Ramesses II before the Pylon and at the entrance to the Colonnade are Ka-statues, cult statues of the king as embodiment of the royal Ka. Six barque shrines, serving as way stations for the barques of the gods during festival processions, were set up on the avenue between the Karnak and Luxor Temple.

The avenue which went in a straight line between the Luxor Temple and the Karnak area was lined with human-headed sphinxes of Nekhtanebo I,21, in ancient times it is probable that these replaced earlier sphinxes which may have had different heads. Along the avenue the stations were set up for ceremonies such as the Feast of Opet which held significance to temple; each station had a purpose, for example the fourth station was the station of Kamare, which cooled the oar of Amun. The Fifth station of Kamare was the station. Lastly the Sixth Station of Kamare was a shrine for Holy of Steps. A small mud-brick shrine was built, in the courtyard of Nectanebo I, in early second century and was dedicated to Serapis and Isis, it was presented to Roman Emperor Hadrian on his birthday; the active Abu Haggag Mosque is located within the temple, standing on the ancient columns themselves. That part of the Luxor Temple was conv
