Karnak Ramesses Statue EG074863jhp 
 Karnak Temple Egypt Luxor granite statue Ramesses daughter Bentanta imposing one of the early highlights as one enters this huge temple complex located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and it the largest religious complex on the Nile. In the first court after entering through the main entrance of the first pylon there is the single but overwhelming papyrus column, all that remains of the pillared kiosk of Taharqa, and the large block of alabaster, possible a barque station. Beyond is the second pylon with its decorated front and the beginning of the famous hypostyle hall leading to the distant obelisks and inner sanctuary with this Ramses statue on your left.
