3/50.- Luxor, Luxor Temple 2


The Luxor Temple was dedicated to the Thebes triad: Amon (king of gods), Mut (his wife) and Khnum (their son, the moon god). Every year, during the floods, a great celebration took place here. The three gods crossed the river on a boat to celebrate the Opet festivals.

In the photo you can see the huge pillars in the Amenophis III courtyards. Behind these pillars there is the temple of Amon, which Romans used for their cults.
