Barque Stations were resting places for the statue of the god when journeying outside the temple during festival processions. The god would inhabit this temporary shrine and bestow blessings to the local population.
The first station was usually inside the temple and the second just outside its pylon walls. Other stations were built at greater distances along the processional rout up and down the Nile. Some were just a few miles apart such as for the Opet festival from Karnak to Luxor. Other festival processions travelled considerable distances such as the 106 miles during the feast of the Divine Union when the goddess Hathor travelled from Dendara to the temple of Horus at Edfu.
