Abu'l-Hajjaj Mosque, Luxor

Directors: Nairy Hampikian and May El-Ibrashi
Completed September 2008

Objective: The mosque, built within the Luxor Temple, was damaged by fire in 2006. In 2007, SCA renovation work removed plaster from interior walls, revealing the archaeology of the standing building. In response to an unprecedented opportunity to record this important structure, Nairy Hampikian and May al-Abrashi were given permission to undertake a building study of the mosque in collaboration with the SCA.
