Abstract:
This paper is based on some archaeological evidence gathered during my fieldwork in various sites of Western Thebes. They mainly concentrated in the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III, to figure out and identify the processional way of The Beautiful Valley Feast (BVF) in western Thebes, as the Author already did in his last publication about the Khoiak feast procession way in Western Thebes (EJARS 9 2019, 61-68: BIFAO 117 (2018), 9-27). On the other side also to enrich the theory that Amenhotep III has enlarged his temple to the west (NW) to involve the old processional way of the feast and refashioned it again to made his temple as a focal temple in this feast.
