Another reminder of the power of this Great Pharaoh Ramses III stands in the form of the Mortuary Temple with reminders of his great rule and strength scattered across Egypt in various locations.

The mortuary Temple of Ramses II took around 20 years to build as a part of his funerary complex The magnificent temple is on Luxor’s West Bank and in its day the Ramesseum was similar to Abu Simbel in grandeur and Medinet Habu in architecture.The Nile floods deteriorated the Temple in which Ramses is portrayed as an eternal deity.Make sure to notice the images of the Battle of Qadesh in which the Pharaoh is shown firing his arrows at the retreating enemy.The colossal statues of Ramses III which once stood tall at the entrance are now in ruins but you can still see parts scattered around the Temple.
