Well, the last set of tomb pics are from Rameses III and it was definitely worth it.😍
KV 11 is quite interesting. As the workers dug in creating the chambers and corridors they actually came into contact with KV 10 (belonging to Amenmeses) and had to divert off to the right to avoid it.
KARNAK TEMPLE.... and the view I was yearning for over two decades.
The beauty of temples far exceeded my expectations. As I walked through the main gate and saw the ancient spledor, my eyes became wet with tears. This place is really strong. As if the energy of all believers who visited the temple and worshiped the Theban Triad of gods, was still accumulated inside.
Whether you are history lover, follower of ancient religions or simply an interested visitor, the temple has the power to enchant you. Even the Napoleon soldiers were so impressed by splendour of Theban temples, that they formed ranks and saluted as their bands played tribute to the ancient architects.
Have you ever been moved to tears by the splendor of places and things around you ❔ .
I cried my way though the British museum and leave several of my tears in Pergamon museum, Berlin, by the Ishtar gate to Babylon.
TRAVEL TIPS: 💶 Entrance costs around 5€ and it's usually included in price of organized trips.💧Be sure to take enough water with you. I spend just about an hour in the temples and needed at least 1l of water. It's better to take water from hotel or buy it on the road to Luxor in some shop. Everything inside the temple is overpriced. 😵 If you really don't want to buy souvenirs from sellers there, don't look at them, don't answer their questions.. simply ignore them at all. They are very annoying and once you show just a bit of interest, they do everything not to let you leave without a purchase. 📷 Photographing is allowed in all areas of temples. Don't trust anyone telling you otherwise, they just want you to pay them extra money. 🚶Similarly, be careful when someone offers you to take a picture of you etc, they always expect several dollars for their services.
