Architectural Features

Many of the best preserved examples of Egyptian temples date to the New Kingdom (1550-1069 BCE), a period of national wealth and renewed interest in monumental building. Although each temple’s layout is unique, these buildings show a remarkable unity of plan, demonstrating that Egyptian architects envisioned the temple as composed of a series of core parts: an entrance gateway or pylon, an open court, a columned/hypostyle hall, a rear sanctuary with side rooms, and a naos (central shrine).

The resources in this section describe this basic temple form and illustrate its associated features including a discussion of column types, decoration, and landscaping.
