Luxor Temple: skip-the-line e-tickets

Whether you're a history buff, or simply curious about the history of Egypt, visiting the Luxor Temple is a great idea. It's one of the largest open-air museums in the world, and is a must-see attraction. It was the largest mortuary temple ever erected in Egypt, and it was built by Queen Pharaoh Hatshepsut. You can visit the temple itself, as well as the catacombs.

It was built by Queen Pharaoh Hatshepsut

During her reign as a pharaoh, Queen Hatshepsut built one of the most important monuments of ancient Egypt. The temple is situated near the Valley of the Queens and is a remarkable work of beauty. It is a three-story building with interesting columns and hieroglyphics. It took fifteen years to complete.

The first level of the temple contains a colonnade. The second level contains two reflecting pools and sphinxes. The third level holds an Osiris statue. Osiris was an Egyptian god of resurrection and fertility. The statue is delicate in its features. It wears the Double Crown of Egypt. The statue is placed in front of a column.

It was the largest mortuary temple ever erected in Egypt

During the reign of the Fifth Pharaoh of Egypt's Eighteenth Dynasty, Queen Hatshepsut had a temple built in Luxor. This temple was one of the most important architectural achievements of ancient Egypt. It was designed by Senemut, the chief official of Hatshepsut's court.

The Temple of Hatshepsut was built in 1479 BCE. It was a large colonnaded structure with three tiers. It was located on the west bank of the Nile River, near the Valley of the Kings. This temple was dedicated to the creator god Amun.

The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut is considered one of the most magnificent temples in the world. The temple's design was inspired by the Temple of Mentuhotep II. This temple is also located on the west bank of the Nile. It is part of the Theban Necropolis.

It was buried under rubble

During excavations at the Temple of Hatshepsut, a team of Polish archaeologists found an ancient Egyptian "garbage dump" piled high with offerings to the fertility goddess Hathor. The 3,500-year-old dump, which lay beneath the Luxor Temple, contained several hundred artifacts. Some of the items were from the 18th dynasty, while others were from the early Middle Kingdom.

The site was considered a home for the dead by the Egyptians, who believed that the deceased sailed through the underworld at night in a boat. This led to the construction of huge tomb structures.

The mound contains many artifacts, including blocks of limestone, blocks from the sanctuary of Amun, and painted pots from the 18th dynasty. In addition, dozens of female figurines were discovered.

The lower level of the complex is underwater, while the top two levels are accessible. In order to provide a comfortable experience for visitors, the lower stairs are higher than the upper stairs.
