Medinet Habu

Luxor, Egypt

Make a trip to the West Bank to visit the Medinet Habu. This was Ramses III’s magnificent mortuary temple (1550–332 BC).

At Madinet Habu the entire Temple of Ramesses III, palace and town is enclosed within a defensive wall. Entry is through the Highgate, which in appearance resembles an Asiatic fort. Just inside the Highgate, to the south, are the chapels of Amenirdis I, Shepenwepet II and Nitoket, wives of the god Amun. To the north side is the chapel of Amun. These chapels were a later addition dating to the 18th Dynasties.
