Temple of Khonsu - Luxor - Egypt

The temple of Khonsu is located inside the monumental complex of Karnak at Luxor, Egypt. The temple was built in sandstone during the reign of Ramesses III (XIX Dyn). Several blocks derived from preexisting temples were reused in the interior. The rooms of the temples have polychrome decoration and relief wall decorations. We carried out a preliminary assessment of the state of preservation of six rooms in the temple (See section “Projects”). One year later - in 2009 - we carried out and completed an intervention of restoration for the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) and the Egyptian Antiquities Organization, securing all the fragments that were at risk of collapse in various rooms, and the complete restoration of paintings in room 12.
