    Karnak Temple

    When the construction of the Karnak temple in Luxor started , this work faced many difficulties. In the past, the Egyptians built houses and then built gates. The sun has risen many times before setting in the valley that Karnak's gate has not yet been completed. Many people have thought of a scenario that will never be completed. However, as the help of the gods, the temple of Karnak was completed and was a massive, sophisticated and complete construction.

    It owns rows of sheep-head sphinx statues, large courtyards, small rooms worshiping Amun, his wife and his son. The sacrificial place built the white Alabaster stone pedestals for the people to pray.
    When visiting, visitors are always attracted to one of the inscriptions on the stone walls. It was quite interesting and special - because it was a prayer of the first Pharaon. The inscriptions on them were symbols quite similar to the structure of the key, carved around the Pharaon.
    Until now, the temple of Karnak is still considered one of the temples in the largest ancient Egyptian city of Luxor . Because many temples in Pharaon focus on renovating, renovating and worshiping for the gods Amun-Ra (god of the Sun), Montu (god of war) and Mut (wife of the sun). Each Pharaon seemed to always try to compete with each other in order to try to prove his devotion to the supreme gods and at the same time to please the priests.

    Situated on the banks of the Nile, the Luxor temple was built by Pharaon Amenhotep III, where Queen Hatshepsut worshiped Amun.
    The Edfu Temple worships the god Horus which is the best preserved temple in Egypt. The construction of the temple began in 237 BC, during the reign of the third Ptolemy and was completed two centuries later, under the father of the legendary Cleopatra. The temple is a combination of traditional Egyptian elements and dotted with ancient Greek architecture.
    In front of the temple is a towering tower built by Ramesses II. The tower adorned with Ramesses' victories (especially the battle at Kadesh), later Pharaohs, especially the Nubian dynasty 25, also recorded their victories there.
    The main entrance leads to the temple complex that was once flanked by six giant statues of Ramesses - four sitting and two standing, but today there are only two sitting statues. Those who visit the temple today can see in front of the temple a 25m high marble tower. Previously a whole pair but now only one tree. The other tree is located in Place de la Concorde, Paris.

    Temple of Abu Simbel

    The Abu Simbel Temple was recognized by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage in the mid-1960s and is the pride of the people of Egypt. The temple of Abu Simbel is located on a precipitous ridge about 280 meters south of the first waterfall in the Nile region.
    Pharaoh Ramesses I was carved into the rock of the 13th century BC to worship him and Queen Nefertiti. In the 1960s, to avoid being submerged by the Nasser River water from the dam dam, the temple was chopped into parts and transported to a new location. The relocation took 4 years and cost US $ 40 million.
    The main face of Abu Simbel temple is about 40m wide, 30m high, the great hall and small palace are located 60m deep in the mountains. Abu Simbel Temple is a unique stone temple architecture system built from about 1264 - 1244 BC.

    Hatshepsut Temple

    Queen Hatshepsut Temple, is an ancient church in Egypt. Built for the eighth-century Pharaoh Hatshepsut, the temple sits below the cliffs in Deir el Bahari, on the west bank of the Nile near the Valley of Kings. This temple is dedicated to the sun god Amun and is located next to the tower temple of Mentuhotep II. It is considered one of the "incomparable monuments of ancient Egypt".
    The royal architect Senenmut was the supervisor of the temple's construction. Although the nearby temple of Mentuhotep was used as a model, the two buildings are significantly different in many ways. The layered architecture of Hatshepsut Temple corresponds to the classical Theban form, with courtyards, courts, hypostyle rooms, solar courts, chapels and cathedrals.
    The temple once houses two statues of Osiris and numerous sculptures of the queen in different poses - standing, sitting, or kneeling. Many portraits were destroyed at the order of Stephens Thutmose III's daughter after the queen's death.
