Medinet Habu

The temple of Ramses III at Medinet Habu or “the temple of millions of years” is in fact the last tradition temple of Egypt. After this one there has never been built another one as this temple. Ok, of course there are more temples after this one, Dendera, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Philae etc, but they are from a later period and you can find the influences of the Greek and Romans.
Habu is pure and was built like the Ramesseum , almost side by side. It is a pity that Habu is missing the end part, the great Hypostile Hall, and the Ramesseum is missing all but the Hypostile Hall, so if you combine the two together you can have a good idea of the greatness of this impressive building.
