Egypt – The Colossi of Memnon

We drove out of Luxor and made our way out on to the plains to the impressive Colossi of Memnon – and they were colossal.

We went past the harvested fields and stopped by two huge restored statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III

We then went on to the massive Colossi of Memnon –  statues of the Pharaoh Amenhotep III.

The images on the side panel were still very clear – the god Hapi and the royal wife Tiye.
