Temple of Medinat Habu - Luxor Egypt

The great mortuary temple of Ramses III dominates the site at Medinat Habu.  Second in size only to Karnak, the main pylon and well-preserved wall carvings record military campaigns against the sea peoples and depict bound captives from Syria, Nubia, Palestine, and other border countries.  Vivid colors on columns and ceilings are quite well preserved.  A ceremonial palace complex is adjacent.  Tickets available at the West Bank kiosk.  Open daily from 6:00 am to 5 :00 pm.
