Medinet Habu Second Courtyard
Luxor & Karnak
From http://www.ancient-egypt.co.uk/medinet habu The Temple of Ramesses III is the best preserved among all temples of Thebes, and its decorated surfaces amount to 7,000 square meters. Medinet Habu, a small village situated a little over two kilometres to the south of the Ramesseum, was called Djanet by the ancient Egyptians and, according to popular belief, it was the place where Amun appeared for the first time. From ancient times, it was the place of worship dedicated to this god, as evidenced by the existence in this place of a temple of the 18th Dynasty dedicated to Amun of Djanet, built during the time of Hatshepsut and Tuthmosis III, probably on the ruins of a still more ancient temple; this was what later induced Ramesses III to order the construction there of his own memorial temple.
