Egypt – The Fabulous Karnak Temple – Obelisks, Statues and Incredible Carving

I could have spent a year wandering around this incredible place. There was so much to see – the details were amazing.

The size of the columns was incredible.

The obelisks were incredible.

I could stand among the ruins and imagine what it would have been like in all its glory.

So many of the amazing statues had no heads or had their faces hacked off. I have seen this all over the world. Muslims do this. In their religion, they are forbidden to show images (they could be craven images) – hence the fabulous abstract art – and somehow think they have the right to desecrate other peoples’ sacred object.

The hieroglyphics were amazing.

There are a few places where you can get a sense of the amazing colours this temple would have been adorned with.
