Ramesseum Temple is located on the West Bank of Luxor. It originally served as the mortuary temple of Ramses II, whose 67-year rule saw the creation of many fabulous public buildings and architectural wonders.
The ancient Egyptians called the temple the “million years temple” due to its huge surface area. The structure covers an incredible fifty thousand square meters. It is also home to gigantic statues of Ramses II that were built on the site. The huge complex which was dedicated to the god Amun took 20 years and tens of thousands of workers to build.
