Temple of Hatshepsut
The magnificent temple of Queen Hatshepsut (1479–1458 BC), which was constructed in 1479 BC to worship Amun and preserve the memory of Hatshepsut, is the largest, most beautiful, and best-preserved temple ever constructed in the history of the world.
The Colossi of Memnon, one of Luxor’s largest buildings, was built by Amenhotep III (1386–1350) to stand in front of his temple in Cairo but was eventually relocated there to serve as the city’s everlasting watchman.
