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, theRoyal Palace of Amenophis III and theTemple of Thutmosis . TheTemple of Rameses III is reached via theMigdol , 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 includesChapels of the Divine Adoratrices of Amun , small temples decorated with scenes of offerings.
