4/50.- Luxor, Luxor Temple, reliefs


On the walls of the temple you will find many reliefs carved on the stones. They depict the procession of Opet, and episodes from historical wars. These reliefs are in the part of the temple that used to be open to the public during the ceremonies. There were also some rooms closed to the public. One of these rooms was the sanctuary of Amon, where there used to be a statue of this god.

In another room there are the reliefs that relate the birth of Amenophis III. He was supposed to be the son of Amon. This god, disguised as Amenophis's father, met his mother and conceived him.
