Karnak Temple Battle Scene EG0214034jhp 
 Hypostyle Wall Egyptian Karnak Sety battle scene chariot prisoners damaged carving on the outer wall of the Hypostyle Hall at Karnak, a site located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and it the largest religious complex on the Nile. The most famous and awesome part of The Great Temple of Amun is 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 greatly lacking in perfection is still overwhelming in its scale. This photo is taken from the outside of the hall on the northern side of the Temple where most of the inscriptions are related to Seti 1 and his various military campaigns in Syria and Palestine and the hall is viewed from the gate on this side.
