The Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) completed the restoration process of a gold shrine in Habu Temple, western Luxor.
This step comes in line with the Tourism Ministry’s plans to restore and develop archaeological sites in various parts of the country, especially Upper Egypt
Mostafa Waziry, Secretary-General of the SCA, affirmed that the restoration work was carried out by the council’s Egyptian workers. Waziry indicated that they removed every dirt and damage caused by erosion factors over the past years.
On his part, Saadi Awad, Director General of Maintenance and Restoration in Upper Egypt, noted that the gold shrine is a part of the Temple of Habu’s restoration project that began last March.
Moreover, Awad mentioned that they recorded and documented every work that has been done in the gold shrine before, during, and after the restoration.
It is worth noting that Habu Temple was built dedicated to Amun and Rameses III.
