 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.

Queen Merit-Amun Bust EG11811JHP 
 Egypt Cairo Museum Exhibit bust Queen Merit-Amun Ramasseum Rameses 11 in the prime antiquities collection in Cairo taken during visits between 1994 and 1996 when photography was allowed albeit without flash and tripod.

Sites covered include Abydos, Colossi of Memnon, Abydos temple, Osireion, Dendera Temple, Edfu Temple, Esna Temple, Esna Lock, Karnak Temple, Kom Ombo Temple, Luxor Temple, Philae Temple, Aswan Felucca; River Nile cruise, Pyramids of Giza and The Sphinx

It is an area left to the individual to explore and has an eerie feel wandering amongst some grotesque eroded faces of limestone showing the natural damage that centuries of wind and blown sand can do to unprotected soft limestone. To the western boundary of this area is a large bluff with the modern Muslim cemetery beneath it captured in this photo. It was taken using a Nikon FM manual camera, 28mm f2.8 Nikkor or Tokina SD 28-70mm f3.5lens with a Red filter, rated at 200ASA and processed in Aculux for 14 mins.

Karnak Temple SS984622jhp 
 Karnak Temple storage rescued obelisks dawn sunrise winter light palm tree located on the transverse axis south from the main central area between the eighth and tenth pylons and the boundaries of Khonsu temple in this large site near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and it the largest religious complex on the Nile. The in fill from many Atenist temples has been removed particularly from the inside of the ninth pylon and much of the area around the eighth to tenth pylons is largely covered in various blocks of variously decorated stone all eventually waiting new homes in restored chapels such as that of Hatshepsut's Chapelle Rouge in the Open Air Museum. In the distance at the obelisks of Thutmose 1 and Queen or King Hatshepsut. This particular photograph was taken in 1998 as part of a Stars and Signs cruise and we were able to access the temple at sunrise before it opened to the main package tour traffic. This allowed photos to be taken in beautiful golden early morning light which was particularly useful in highlighting some of the rich wall reliefs.

Encased by Thutmosis 111 who disapproved of his Aunt, his bid to remove her existence benefited us in that the lower section remained largely intact as can be seen in this photo but higher sections were defaced by Akhenaten some 130 years later.

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. The area is a cluster of ruins and blocks in storage and is very seldom frequented so always quiet in the crowded times. On the day I visited we had very poor light conditions caused by an encroaching sand storm and it was very overcast so apologies for the quality of these few images; one day I hope to return and get them in better light.

The chapel is dedicated to the Princess Ankhnesneferibre, daughter of Psamtik 11 and his Queen Takhut and she became successor to Nitocris the Divine Adoratice and later God’s Wife of Amun, High Priest and effectively ruled Thebes for nearly 60 years during the later Saite Period of Rule over Egypt; started in Dynasty 24 and centred on City of Sais in Northern delta region. Turbulent times however and she was in effect the last to hold this position for around the time of her death Psamtik 111, after a very short reign, was defeated by the Persian’s and the 26th Dynasty came to an end in 525BC.

 Ancient Egyptian Temple Lake Nasser es-Sebua al-Sabu Pylon Statue Ramses is located on the shores of Lake Nasser after relocation from its previous location 2km away to avoid flooding after the creation of the High Dam in Aswan.

The temple was later used for Christian worship and has the curious site of Ramesses adoring St Peter in the sanctuary.

This particular exhibit shows the Queen on the left and Amun on the right with two standing obelisks at Karnak one of which still stands and is similiar to blocks now in the reconstructed Chaple Rouge while this one is in the museum proper and was taken in 1996 when you could pay to take photographs but not use a tripod, now not allowed at all, and I used Kodak 5042 Tungsten Slide film which still meant hand holding was at the extremes of useful photography in low light conditions.

Note this image is slightly soft so may need extra sharpening. Tanis has a Ramesside Temple of Amun with other temples from reigns of Osorkon, Sheshonq and Ptolemy but of special interest are the Royal Tombs where that of Psusennes in particular was intact and gave up one of the richest burial good collections, apart from Tutankhamun, with its famous silver coffin, now in the Cairo Museum. A visit to Tanis is usually by private means but can be incorporated with a day trip through the Delta visiting Heliopolis and Tell Basta but does involve considerable motoring.

Tell Basta Royal Statue EG077135JHP 
 Tell Basta statue Meritamun daughter Ramses queen Nefertari Egypt Delta site at Bubastis a large complex near the town of Zagazig north of Cairo which has recently had a new visitors centre and museum built of which this huge statue is a centrepiece and is suggested to be Ramses daughter Meryetamun but might be his wife Nerfertari but overall the site remains a rather confusing collection of damaged material with the main temple of Bastet reflected in this photographs. Damaged by earthquakes some 2000 years ago as is seen in much of the structural damage today it is still fascinating with the excitement of finding beautiful carvings and examples of the craftsmanship of those ancient builders now hidden away amongst grass and a scatter field of damaged remnants from what was a huge cult site to the Cat Goddess Bastet visited by hundreds and thousands of pilgrims as recorded by Herodotus. Not usually part of normal Egyptian packages but can be visited privately and is part of an interesting day journey that should include Tanis as well.

Black Pyramid Dashur eg0095jhp 
 Egypt Pyramids Amenemhet 111 Dahshur Black mudbrick desert rubble Red view ruined structural problems was started early in the 46 year reign of the King but is thought to have had structural defects because of its location close to Lake Dashur as well as too many internal rooms and passageways which could not support its weight. The Pharaoh, Middle Kingdom c1800BC was not buried in the pyramid [in Hawara] but two of his wives were and their remains were found by Dieter Arnold in 1976-83. The beautiful pyramidion in black gray granite, possibly never set in place, is in the Cairo Museum. The pyramid is one of several still standing at the Dashur necropolis although over shadowed by the more famous and probably oldest Bent, the slightly later Red or North pyramid visible in distance as well as others more ruined which were built towards the end of the pyramid era.

Bent Pyramid Dashur eg961329ajhp 
 Egypt Dahshur Bent Red North Pyramids entrance high view vehicle sand desert is a famous and very distinct shape with a reduced slope created mid way up, possibly because of the need to complete the construction earlier than expected or its was structurally unsound. It is the most complete pyramid with most of its Tura limestone cladding intact, although some corners and near the top have been plundered but offer a good indicator of how the Giza pyramids would have looked when completed. Near the pyramid on its south side is a subsidiary one, badly degraded, which was found to have not been used and is felt to be too small for the King’s Queen Hetepheres. When I visited the site in 1995, the same year the military allowed tourist visits, the north entrance, there are two, was reached by climbing up the outside of the structure assisted by the helpful guide but I was unable to reach the burial chamber as I did not trust the rope ladder available. Nearby are several other pyramids of which the North or Red Pyramid also of Sneferu [Old Kingdom, 4th Dynasty c2613-2494BC] is the older, largest and most intact. The others of much poorer quality are from the Middle Kingdom 12th Dynasty some 600 years later

Near the pyramid on its south side is a subsidiary one, badly degraded, which was found to have not been used and is felt to be too small for the King’s Queen Hetepheres.

Khenu Mastaba Lintel EG02AA88jhp 
 Saqqara Ancient Egyptian mastaba Khenu lintel Unas cartouche hieroglyphs is located by the causeway and near Pyramid of Unas on the southwest corner near the Step Pyramid and associated with what was the smallest of the pyramids built belonged to Unas, the last King of the 5th Dynasty around 2345BC. There are several other mastabas near the causeway and behind this small one is a large one dedicated to the Queen’s of Unas Khenut and Nebet. Khenu was the son of Nefer, the Inspector of artisans and singers. I could find little information about Khenu and in several reference books/guide books his mastaba is not mentioned. I understand he had two sons called Ihy and Simoenas, one of which appears in the carvings and his mastaba has an excellent example of a false door. There are several cartouches for the King Unas indicating that Khenu and his father served during this period.

Khenu was the son of Nefer, the Inspector of artisans and singers. I could find little information about Khenu and in several reference books/guide books his mastaba is not mentioned. I understand he had two sons called Ihy and Simoenas, one of which appears in the carvings and his mastaba has an excellent example of a false door. There are several cartouches for the King Unas indicating that Khenu and his father served during this period.
