27/50.- Luxor, Karnak Temple, statues


Well, we will finish the visit to this beautiful complex here. If you want to see more, you will hve to come to Luxor in person (which, by the way it is not a bad idea at all).

Within the enclosure of the great temple of Amon are included several other small temples and shrines. A temple to Ptah, in the North side of the enclosure, was built by Hatshepsut and Thutmose III and added to by the Ptolemies, who also embellished the great temple of Amon by the addition of granite shrines and gateways. To the south, Ramses III dedicated a temple to Khons, the moon god, which merits attention. A small late temple to Opet, the hippopotamus goddess, adjoins it.
