The Second Temple is the Luxor temple. It is believed that one of the ancient Egyptian festivals was held inside the temple, as there are many pictures on the walls describing the celebration of the festival. King Amenhotep III erected the inner half, while King Ramses II built the outer part. Both King Thutmose III and Alexander the Great erected chapels at the back of the temple.

The Ptolemaic temple was dedicated to the falcon god "Horus". The reliefs that cover the walls, columns, and doorways of the temple constitute an extremely important source of information about ancient Egyptian religious and political thought. Among the most interesting of these reliefs tell the story of Horus exacting his revenge on Seth for the murder of his father, Osiris, an event that was re-enacted annually in the temple.

Other reliefs recount the stages of the temple’s construction and provide dates for the completion of different building elements.

The most spectacular aspect of this temple is its setting in the solid rock above the banks of the Nile River. The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the "Nubian Monuments," which runs from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). It is believed that the axis of the temple was positioned by the ancient Egyptian architects in such a way that on October 22 and February 22, the rays of the sun would penetrate the sanctuary and illuminate the sculptures on the back wall, except for the statue of Ptah, the god connected with the Underworld, who always remained in the dark. These dates are allegedly the king's birthday and coronation day.
