Egypt > Abydos & Dendara (2 files)

Images of two important sites north of Luxor near the River Nile but usually visted as an extra tour either by road or a day cruise.
Dendera Temple EG007129jhp 
 Dendera temple Egypt Tiberian Hall ceiling carvings painted Hathor damaged faces in this beautiful mainly Ptolemaic and Roman structure although the site extends back into the earliest periods of Egyptian existence and it is also famous as having one of the only representations the famous Queen Cleopatra V11 with her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion.This photo is of the elaborate ceiling and columns of the Tiberian columned hall which first faces the visitor entering the temple proper. The tops of the columns have Hathor faces vandalised in antiquity, probably when it was filled with sand and seen as pagan for the earlier Christians who often used these temples as churches and were thus easily able to obliterate the faces. What is very wonderful even today is the elaborate nature of the decorations not only on the ceilings but also covering in exquisite details all the sides of the columns and the surrounding walls. The temple can be reached by road from Luxor and is also the destination for a popular day cruise on the River Nile from Luxor via Qena.

 Abydos Village modern ancient mudbrick buildings Egyptian Temple Ramses photo is a 10 minute walk to the NW of the main Sety 1 Temple at Abydos, passing remains of ancient dwelling houses near the modern town of Abydos. Although this temple is small and completely uncovered, it is worth the walk and effort to see it for there are many high quality colorful painted reliefs which are easily accessible and a joy to behold. Probably covered as late as the Napoleonic exploration means the sun and exposure to the elements has not had long enough to destroy the colours completely something that will eventually happen.

Aswan Nubian Museum Skeleton EG052935JHP 
 Aswan Egyptian Nubian Museum grave and skeleton dating to prehistory around 35-3000BC and found at Kubanieh, the 2nd Cataract on the River nIle at Aswan. Semi Nomadic tribe buring dead in oval/rectangular pits of a stone structure and including burial goods just as peronal ornaments made of ivory, faience, bone; shells and coloured stones. An exhibit in this modern building whose foundations were laid in 1986, opened in 1997 and organised through UNESCO. Very low artificial light makes general photography difficult as well as affecting accurate colour balance. This now appears to be the only museum in Egypt where photography is still allowed although it is not easy as the ambient lighting is extremely subdued for conservation reasons.

Giza Khafre Pyramid EG024113jhp 
 Khafre Khufu Pyramids Egypt Giza tombs limestone desert sand foreground, the second largest of the Gizah site monuments and constructed between 2558-2532BC during the reign of the Pharaoh Khafre [Greek name Chephren], one of Khufus sons and is responsible during a reign of around 25 years for the magnificent Funerary complex which is held to include The Sphinx. Although his Mortuary Temple is almost nothing but a foundation, his Valley Temple is a fantastic example of the skills of the early Egyptian craftsman with huge accurately cut pillars of granite which was the house after his death for numerous statues including the famous diorite one now in the Cairo Museum. This view is of the southern face showing the mainly uncovered structure although remains of the outer casing of Tura Limestone can still be seen near the top and in the distance on the right the Great Pyramid of Khufu.

This is the North face of the pyramid with the entrance and the huge gash left by earlier more brutal attempts of accessing the burial chamber.

Luxor Karnak Temple EG949519jhp 
 Hypostyle Hall Reliefs Karnak Egypt Temple Columns windows carving hieroglyphics taken in late afternoon light unfortunately during a sand storm so the general light was very poor. This early part of a visit to Karnak is on a huge sprawling a site located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and it is the largest religious complex on the Nile. This is the most famous and awesome part of The Great Temple of Amun, the hypostyle hall with it huge columns, the central ones reaching 23m high. Originally erected by Seti 1 and was completed by his son Ramses 11 and although today despite lacking in overall perfection is still overwhelming in its scale. This photo is taken from inside the great columned hall and where diminutive figures appear one can gauge the huge scale and fantastic workmanship of the skilled builders who worked with basic tools and no modern mechanical equipment.

Karnak Temple Sandstorm EG0214013jhp 
 Karnak Egypt Chapel gate sandstorm dramatic light hypostyle palms hazy which is located inside the central enclosure wall of the Karnak complex at Luxor on the East Bank of the River Nile. It is a relatively ruined small temple lying near the exterior north wall of the hypostyle hall and the path to the Temple of Ptah and gate to Montu Temple in the North Enclosure.

This early part of a visit to Karnak is on a huge sprawling a site located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and it is the largest religious complex on the Nile. This is the most famous and awesome part of The Great Temple of Amun, the hypostyle hall with it huge columns, the central ones reaching 23m high. Originally erected by Seti 1 and was completed by his son Ramses 11 and although today despite lacking in overall perfection is still overwhelming in its scale. This photo is taken from inside the great columned hall and where diminutive figures appear one can gauge the huge scale and fantastic workmanship of the skilled builders who worked with basic tools and no modern mechanical equipment.

The pictures in this gallery are of the worker's village on the west bank of the River Nile at Luxor and the Ptolemaic Temple, the Great Pit and small chapels of Hathor and Amun
Deir el-Medina EG075174jhp 
 Deir el-Medina Ancient Egypt great Ostrakon pit bottom empty deep is located on the West Bank of the River Nile at Luxor lies to the west of Qurnet Murai hill and is the location of a workman's village with the remains of houses, streets, temples and chapels. The workers are known for their work in the Valley tombs which they reached walking over the Theban plateau. Most photographs show the streets, houses, interior with domestic bowls and grinding querns and others a general overview of the village with its tombs and rock tombs to the North West corner. There are also some exquisitely decorated underground tombs of which a couple are included in the entrance ticket.

This photo includes the Great Pit, a 60 metre deep excavated hole to access ground water, possibly dug during Graeco-Roman times to save the burdensome carrying of water from sources nearer the Nile. There is the remain of a small building, mudbrick and mud lined, attributed to Roman origin and huge piles of broken shards from drinking pots, urns and other earthenware pottery vessels used for the possible carrying and retention of water, some designs are plain while others have patterns. However there is a suggestion that water was never found either in the Ramasseid period when first attempts are thought to have started and even in the later Ptolemaic times. It did however serve in latter years as a huge tip from which large quantities of ostraka where recovered giving detailed insights to the daily life and skills of the workmen in the nearby village. From the Great Pit are open views eastwards past the Ramasseum, across the fertile agricultural area of the West Bank to the distant pylons of Karnak Temple.

Amarna North Palace EG075902jhp 
 Amarna North Palace centre floor bricks outline archaeology Mudbrick Egypt Akhenaten by the River Nile at el-Till across to the east bank of the river and near the modern Egyptian city of Minya is built round a sacred pool now identified by a few palm trees in its centre.

The entrance on the south side is visible but the high ground water table means it is flooded as are all the lower chamber areas. It is most famous for the references to the Labyrinth; a comparison of its mortuary and temple complex to that at Knossos by Herodotus although little now remains except for a large area of sandy mounds and hollows divided by a canal; new excavations are underway to determine what might still exist.

Hawara Pyramid eg013110jhp 
 Hawara Faiyum Egypt Amenemhet pyramid mudbricks many closeup layers construction exposed, to the south of Cairo was the last pyramid built in the 12th Dynasty, Middle Kingdom, by the Pharaoh Amenemhet 111 of the later design using mudbrick core which still stands dominant and substantial but the limestone covering of Tura Limestone is now all missing. The entrance on the south side is visible but the high ground water table means it is flooded as are all the lower chamber areas. It is most famous for the references to the Labyrinth; a comparison of its mortuary and temple complex to that at Knossos by Herodotus although little now remains except for a large area of sandy mounds and hollows divided by a canal; new excavations are underway to determine what might still exist. This pyramid was built after the kings first attempt at Dashur was abandoned owing to subsidence problems it appears unfinished at the time of his death c1797BC.

Senwosret Pyramid Lisht eg012733jhp 
 Egypt el-Lisht Pyramid Senusret collapsed mound limestone blocks wall enclosure Middle Kingdom site which also has the slightly better preserved tomb of Amenemhet 1 nearby. Access to Senusrets pyramid is through a local village and agricultural land at the edge of the desert escarpment as is common with most of the pyramid sites south of Giza. I remember passing a very well kept football pitch. A local custodian took me around and also allowed me to take flash photographs of some coloured reliefs on limestone blocks under a roofed area. The pyramid has almost totally collapsed into a huge sandy mound but there were still one section of limestone casing intact and not plundered and around the site were hints at its previous enclosure wall structure with large sections of eroded limestone sticking out of the sand like a whales skeleton. The burial chamber thought to have been robbed shortly after his death is under the ground water table and is inaccessible.
