The temples of Luxor and Karnak were connected by a long causeway.

The Causeway

A line of lion statues stood guard upon the road from Karnak to Luxor.

The temples at Karnak and Luxor were not the work of a single individual, but one pharaoh went out of his way to make sure that he would be associated with these great works. Statues of Ramses guard the entryway.

The Hall

The great hall originally supported a great roof to shield from the elements.


Though Ramses tried to take credit for this statue, it is commonly thought to be a depiction of the boy king Tutankhamun from the 18th Dynasty.
