Temples Of Egypt
The ancient Egyptians believed that temples were homes of the gods and goddesses. Every temple was dedicated to a god or goddesses and he or she was worshiped there by the temple priests and the pharaoh. Few people were allowed to see the inside of the temples. One of the mysterious places in ancient Egypt was the inside of a temple. One of the temples was Temple of Luxor.
The front of, Temple of Luxor was build to impress everyone that saw it. It was the home of a god or goddess. The two blocks that make up the facade are called the pylon. In front of the pylon are the two obelisks. As you enter the doorway into the courtyard.
Ordinary ancient Egyptians may have been allowed to enter the courtyard on special festivals days, but could go no further into the temple. On the rest of the days of the years, they were not even allowed to enter the courtyard. A row of palm columns surrounds the courtyard and another pylon is the gateway into the next room.
