Karnac Temple in Egypt. One of the most incredible places I've ever been. Glad I got the chance to go there when it was a relatively safe place to travel.
Roof of Hypostyle hall Dendera Temple, Egypt. Dendera Temple complex is one of the best-preserved temple complexes in Egypt. Dendera was a site for chapels or shrines from the beginning of ancient Egypt. Pharaoh Pepi I (ca. 2250 BC) built on this site & evidence exists of a temple in the 18th dynasty (ca 1500 BC). But the earliest extant building in the compound today is the Mammisi raised by Nectanebo II, last of the native pharaohs (360–343 BC).
Cult image of the god Ptah, Dynasty 22–early Dynasty 26 (ca. 945–600 B.C.) Egyptian Lapis lazuli H. 2 1/4 in. (5.6 cm) This statuette represents the creator god Ptah, the patron deity of Egypt's capital city, Memphis. His shrouded human form and tight-fitting cap make him quite recognizable.
