Photos in this gallery include the whole of Karnak itself, the open air museum, temples of Khonsu and Ptah and the Sound and Light Show night images.
Karnak Saite Chapel EG0214015jhp 
 Karnak Egyptian Chapel Ankhnesneferibre cobra Wadjet lion face hierogylphs 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. Interesting in this photograph are the lion faced Wadjet Cobras which are very much a Delta Goddess diety.
