Temple design
Karnak and Luxor temples were built to a design that became common in New Kingdom Egypt. An entrance pylon of massive, twin towers was fronted by obelisks and statues. This led to an open peristyle court beyond which was a columned hypostyle hall. Finally came dimly lit chambers that included the holy inner sanctum that was dedicated to the temple god and accessible only to the pharaoh and priests.  (The head of a statue of Ramesses II and an obelisk erected by the pharaoh in front of his entrance pylon to Luxor Temple.)
