Luxor Temple is a large Ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the east bank of the River Nile
in the city today known as Luxor (ancient Thebes) and was founded in 1400 B.C.E.
Known in the Egyptian language as ipet resyt, or "the southern sanctuary",
the temple was dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun, Mut, and Chons and was built during the New Kingdom,
the focus of the annual Opet Festival,
in which a cult statue of Amun was paraded down the Nile from nearby Karnak Temple (ipet-isut)
to stay there for a while, with his consort Mut, in a celebration of fertility – whence its name.
