Rameses II at Luxor – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Letters K or L

This is our entry in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Letters K or L.

This post features one of the most popular statues at the temple of Luxor in Egypt, a seated likeness of Rameses II.

The temple of Luxor, on the east bank of the Nile in Luxor (previously known as Thebes) in Egypt, was built around 1400 BC.  The entrance to the temple (the first pylon) was built by the king Rameses II. The photograph is of one of the huge seated statues of Rameses II flanking this gate.
