Visited there recently :) Colossal statues of Ramses II (19th Dynasty) wearing the Pshent crown flank the entrance to Luxor Temple. The double crown symbolizes the two regions of upper and lower Egypt.

The Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the Djeser-Djeseru, is located beneath the cliffs at Deir el Bahari on the west bank of the Nile near the Valley of the Kings in Egypt

Temple at Luxor -- Unlike most other Egyptian temples, its main entrance does not face the river and its most obvious axis is aligned towards the temples at Karnak on the royal axis rather than the divine one
