Karnak temple Ptah EG0214004jhp 
 Temple Chapel Ptah headless state Karnak Egyptian vestibule Triad Memphis which is located inside the north enclosure wall of the Karnak Complex at Luxor on the East Bank of the River Nile. It is a delightful small temple and very seldom frequented so always quiet although an extra ‘entry’ fee maybe required to keep the local custodians happy. Constructed by Thutmosis 111 during his reign 1500-1450BC it shows continuous repair and additions through until the Ptolemaic period while inside the small sanctuaries are the broken granite states of Ptah which is illustrated in this photo and Sekhmet in the righthand sanctuary. On the day I visited we had very poor light conditions caused by an encroaching sand storm and it was very overcast which has happened to me twice now at this temple.
