Egyptian Travel: Temple Restoration Follow-Up

Posted by Discoveries Inc. on

I am happy to report that by and large the restoration project in Habu Temple on the West Bank of Luxor has mostly been completed and it looks very good. I had concerns that the work would end up enhancing the colors in a way that was not original and would appear out of place.

To some degree, that did happen, but almost everyone who has seen the results is pleasantly surprised by the current condition of the Temple. Particularly in the second courtyard known as the Mortuary Temple of Ramses III, walls that were completely brown are quite colorful now that the dust has been removed.

You can see the photos of the color comparison here. The video below was taken in October 2022 while the restoration is in process.
