A temple complex located in the city of Thebes, the ancient capital of Egypt during the time of the new kingdom. 
Thebes is located on the East bank of the Nile river.

Temples during the new kingdom were constructed as places of religious worship dedicated to certain gods of the Ancient Egyptians.
The Luxor temple was dedicated to the king of the Egyptian gods Amon-Ra.

Temple design of the new kingdom exhibited a set of common design features in temple construction, one must first pass through the Pylon to enter the temple. 

The Pylon is the entrance to the temple a gateway to outer courtyard of the temple complex built by Ramsses II.
Not just anyone could enter the temple complex, Only the Pharaoh, Priest and other officials are allowed.

The pylon at Luxor is guarded by the statues of Ramsses II and sitting on the each side of the entrance, two stones Obelisks also mark the entrance to the luxor temple, there is only one still stands today, the other obelisk (the smaller one closer to the west) 
is now in the Place de la Concorde in Paris

The temple of Luxor reveals the competitive nature of the Egyptian kings some of the names of the pharaos were scratched out and replaced with names of others. 
There are examples were the name of Tutankhamen was removed and replace with the name of Horemheb, other names that indoor on the column inside the temple complex at luxor include Amenhotep III , Tutankhamen , Ramsses III , Seti I , Horemheb and Seti II

Check out this 360° virtual tour shot inside Temple of Hours at Edfu (115km) away from Luxor - Egypt

The falcon-headed Horus was originally the sky god, whose eyes were the sun and moon.
He was later assimilated into the popular myth of Isis and Osiris as the divine couple's child. Raised by Isis and Hathor after Osiris' murder by his brother Seth, Horus avenged his father's death in a great battle at Edfu. Seth was exiled and Horus took the throne, Osiris reigning through him from the underworld. Thus all pharoahs claimed to be the incarnation of Horus, the "living king."
