The Mosque of Abu Haggag a mosque located in the Egyptian city of Luxor. Specifically, it stands atop the ruins of Luxor Temple, an Ancient Egyptian centre of worship dating back to the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotep III in the 14th century BC. Viewed from the tops of the architraves in the Colonnade Hall, the mosque of Abu'l Haggag dominates the first court at Luxor Temple and aptly demonstrates the continuing adaptation of ancient monuments to modern use. Abu el-Haggag represents a tradition of continuous worship at Luxor Temple for almost thirty-five centuries. During the festival of this modern Muslim saint, boats are paraded around the temple, perhaps an echo of the ancient procession of the barks of Amun, Mut, and Khonsu during the Festival of Opet.
