Medinet Habu

Recommended
It was in the region of the former Thebes that Rameses III decided to build his temple. This mortuary complex encompasses outbuildings, the priests' lodgings, the Royal Palace of Amenophis III and the Temple of Thutmosis. The Temple of Rameses III is reached via the Migdol, a defensive gate similar to those of Asian fortresses, lending it a military look seen nowhere else in Egypt. Like all of the most significant royal mortuary complexes it also includes Chapels of the Divine Adoratrices of Amun, small temples decorated with scenes of offerings.
