Karnak Temple SS98468jhp 
 Karnak Temple Pylon Interior Mudbrick Ramps Remains Egypt dawn light is located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and it the largest religious complex on the Nile. In this photo are the remains of construction mudbrick ramps in the first court behind the first pylon, which appear to have been left behind. The temple complex started from the centre and this area of construction, partly unfinished, was a much later phase possibly during the reign of Nectanebo 1 around 370BC. 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.
