Hieroglyphics at Karnac temple illuminated during the Light and Sound show.
The Egyptians built huge monuments and symbolic gateways. This image shows the ornate hieroglyphs as they are today, after thousands of years of wear.
Passages such as this would have been frequented by Ancient Egyptian priests during ceremonies. Despite their functional role, they remain highly ornate and well preserved.

View from the rear of the Ramasseum. The area around the valley's of the Kings and Queens has a number of small villages such as this one. many of these buildings are ancient in their own right, and the villagers, so tradition has it, have a history of tomb robbing.
Egyptologists are still in the process of renovating many areas of historical interest. This photograph shows an area to the rear of the Ramasseum which is currently being restored to it's former glory. The use of alternative kinds of stone is evident in this picture: something which makes restoration a much more painstaking job.
Pillars at the Ramasseum. The sheer scale of the size of the temples built in Ancient times is demonstrated by this image. Notice the apparent smallness of the scaffolding at the top of the pillars.

The inner sanctum of the Ramasseum. The hieroglyphs here are amazing, highly ornate and, despite the toll of the years, in very good condition.
Another view of the inner sanctum at the Ramasseum. Different styles of design here reflect the different stages of the stories being told in the hieroglyphs and the later influence of the Romans.
Pillars in the temple at Karnac.  Famed for their use in the James Bond film.

Another view of the pillars in Karnac temple. The use of pillars was symbolic in Ancient Egyptian times.
The Egyptians viewed many of their predessors as deities or gods. Statues of them, and the sons of the living Pharoah, often decorated the more ornate temples and palaces of the Pharoahs.
Large parts of the temple complex at Karnac are still being renovated. This section, to the right of the temple as you enter, is due to be restored to it's former glories within three years.

This magnificent pair of statues guarded the road to the valley's of the Kings and Queens. The original route can be clearly identified as there are a large number of markers, in the shape of the phaoronic lions, dotted along the route.
An alternative view of the entrance to the valley's. In the background you can make out the entrance way to the Valley of the Queens, the Valley of the Kings lay to the right of this photograph.
