Located with the large Precinct of Amun-Re at Karnak, in Luxor, Egypt, the small Temple of Ptah lies to the north of the main Amun temple, just within the boundary wall. The building was erected by Thutmose III, on the site of an earlier Middle Kingdom temple. The building was later enlarged by the Ptolemies.

The building consists of 6 small gateways, built close together. The first (to the west) was erected by the Ptolemies. The subsequent gates date from the Eighteenth Dynasty, the first by Hatshepsut, the rest by Thutmose III.
