The Great Temple of the Aten is located in the abandoned city of Ahketaten (modern Amarna, in Egypt). Known as House of Aten in Akhetaten, it was constructed around year 9 of Akhenaten's reign. Unlike temples to other Egyptian gods it consisted of a huge area of courts and offering tables. The 'public' spaces started with the House of Rejoicing (Per-Hay), and the Meeting Aten (Gem-Aten) area, where the offering tables and courts were. The main sanctuary to the east was where Akhenaten and Nefertiti would act as intermediaries for the people to the god.
