14/50.- Luxor, Karnak Temple, Ramses II statue


We are now in the temple area. The temple of Karnak should be called the temples of Karnak, because in this area you will find several temples. The three main ones are: the Temple of Mut, the Temple of Monthu and the Temple of Amun (the three of them are enclosed by high walls). Outside the walls there is the open air museum, the sacred lake and several other temples.

In front of us you can admire the statue of Ramses II. At its left, you can see part of the second pylon, built during Ramses II reign. On our right there is the entrance to the hypostyle hall, one of the most amazing sights in Egypt, which we will see later. Now it is time to go to the Ramses III courtyard (at our back).
