Columns of Karnak Temple - Egypt by 

Some architectural details from Karnak temple. This is one of 134 columns that would have originally supported a now long fallen roof of the 13th century BC structure. This is the Great Hypostyle Hall in the precinct of Amun-Re. Like the temple in nearby Luxor, Karnak was dedicated to the Thebian Triad of gods, Amun, his consort Mut and their son Khonsu.

According to our guide, the current belief is that the columns were erected in pieces, after each layer was laid, sand was built up around the columns to allow the next carved block to be laid on top. This was repeated to a height of 80 feet!

    I really like the shadows on the far wall. I’ve been here and this photo brings me back to when I was standing there.
