Karnak Temple is the second largest ancient religious complex in the world after Angkor Wat in Cambodia. It is also considered the second most visited historical site in Egypt, after the Pyramids of Giza. It consists of four main parts: the courtyard of Amun-Ra and the province of Mut. And the province of "Monto" and the temple of "Amenhotep IV".
Luxor Temple was not like most of the other ancient Egyptian temples on the east-west axis, but it was oriented towards Karnak, this is because the Luxor Temple was the main place of one of the most important ancient Egyptian religious ceremonies where the statues of each of the deities Amun, his wife Mut and their son, the moon god Khonsu were moved from Their temples at Karnak in a grand procession to Luxor Temple.

Some believe that the word Habu refers to Amenhotep, son of Habu, the vizier of Amenhotep III. There is also a belief that this name belongs to the Christian priest, who was residing in this spot after that. This temple is considered one of the largest funerary temples dedicated to the memory of kings in the era of the New Kingdom.
In the valley of a dry river on the west bank of the ancient city of Thebes (modern Luxor), hence its name Valley of the Kings, but this name is not entirely accurate since some members of the royal family other than the kings were buried there, as well as some non-royals, though they were High-ranking. The Valley of the Kings is divided into the eastern and western valleys.
The Valley of the Queens is the burial place of the queens in ancient Egypt. It was known in ancient times as "Ta-Sit-Nefru", which means: "the place of the sons of the pharaoh" or "the place of beauty"; Because in this place were buried the queens of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth dynasties (from 1550 to 1070 BC), in addition to many princes and princesses and a number of the nobility.
