Journey to the Luxor Temple


We are not quite done yet with Egypt yet and hopefully you are not bored by now :-) Today, I am taking you all with me to the Luxor Temple.

Here is a little bit of the background ... In fact, an Egyptologist will take you on a tour ...


And how pictures tell thousand words ...




Your ticket ...

Look at how amazing the architecture is ...



King Tut and his queen

Court of Amenhotep III

The inscription on the wall was once colorful ...


This photo was taken when it was almost sunset ...

The same photo was taken when it was lighted at night ...
Hope you enjoy this very journey and ...

Until next stop,
Journey of Life

  3. Awesome! I won't get bored! I have never been here, and not sure I will, so I love our journey. I am amazed at how detailed these are knowing the time we are talking about and how labor intensive these must have been with the tools of the day. The condition of them is also amazing!

  6. This was an awesome post, Angela. And I am most excited because I believe today the comments are working. Today I get to tell you that I LOVE your travels. And though I am jealous I haven't gotten the chance to do some traveling of my own, I get to live vicariously through you. YAY!

    Big virtual hugs, mi Amiga,
