The Avenue of the Sphinxes is a 3km ancient processional route that once linked Luxor temple with the Temple of Mut at Karnak to the south. The avenue and sphinxes were built during the reign of Nectanebo I (380-363 BC) who ruled during the 30th Dynasty. Each of the approximately 1350 sphinxes which originally lined the route are inscribed with his name.
