Temple of Hatshepsut
Since its construction in 1479 BC to win the grace and will fortune of the creator deity Amun, as well as to stand as the ultimate example of the new kingdom’s Classical Architecture and Queen Hatshepsut’s might and beauty, the Hatshepsut Temple has always been the fairest of them all “The Holy and the Holies” (1508-1458 BC).
Mega sculptures of quartzite sandstone representing Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1386-1350) stand on the outskirts of Luxor, reaching a height of 18 meters (60ft). It was destroyed by an earthquake in 27 BC, but was reconstructed in 199 AD and transported 700 miles from Cairo to Luxor to serve as a watchtower.
It was mainly dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun, Mut, and Khnsou. It was one of existence’s most selected places, the largest man-made constructions and open museum on earth dating back over 4000 years ago filled with many temples, shrines, and great statues for various deities like Osiris, Montu, Ptah, and Isis but it was mostly dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun, Mut, and Khnsou.
