The Ancient Egyptians are well-known for building some of the largest and most magnificant structures ever erected. But many questions remain unanswered. How were these structures really built? Why did the Egyptians build these structures? While working within this section, keep the following questions in mind.

You should be able to describe all aspects of temples.  For example:


  • What is a temple?
  • Why were they important?
  • What did temples look like?
  • What was the inside of a temple like?


This website gives some interesting information on the different temples build for the many pharaohs of Ancent Egypt.


Check out this site for a list of Egyptian temples, where they are located, and for whom they were built.

Watch this video on the Luxor Temple, the video is from the Magical Egypt series with John Anthony West.
