Puimre (also Puyemre or Puiemre) was an ancient Egyptian noble, architect and Second Priest of Amun during the reigns of Thutmose III and Hatshepsut of the 18th Dynasty.[2]

Puimre was the son of Puia and Lady Nefer-iah. He had two wives: Tanefert and Sensonb.[1] His wife Sensonb was the daughter of the High Priest of Amun Hapuseneb – Puimre's superior – and his wife Amenhotep. Sensonb served in the temple of Amun as a Divine Adoratrix.[3]

Puimre's tomb – namely TT39 – is located in El-Khokha, part of the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to Luxor.
