Colossi of Memnon (Luxor)
 
Colossi of Memnon (Luxor)

These are the first ruins visible when arriving by ferry. They are the sole surviving remains of the funerary temple of Amenhotep III which, according to recent discoveries, was more vast than the complex of Karnak. Even with a great deal of imagination, it is difficult to picture.

The faceless giants stand in front of the first pylon with their backs to the mountain. They represent the pharaohs sovereign majesty seated on his throne. The funerary complex, of which nothing remains, was the biggest on the west bank.
