The Luxor Temple was dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun-Re, his wife Mut, and his son Jonsu.

It was called "Ipet resyt", which means the Southern Opet or the Place of the Seclusion of Amun-Re. It was directly connected to the temple of Karnak, the main cult center of Amun-Re or Amun-Min, the sky god or the ithyphallic fertility god.

The temple had another group of divinities that included Iunet, Hathor, and Atum, whose statues were discovered in a hidden storage pit.
