The Ramesseum
 
The Ramesseum

The funerary temple of Ramesses II has lost much of its splendor over the centuries. Poets sang of its glory in antiquity but the dream of self-glorification of Ramesses II, already responsible for the construction of Abu Simbel, has not survived the passing of time or successive pillaging. The broken columns and thorny trees create a romantic and moving sight particularly at sunrise when the first rays brush the gigantic statue of Ramesses II lying in pieces in the ground.

Calculations indicate that the statue must have measured at least 17 m high and weighed around one thousand tons.
