Ramesseum

Tu pride flash

Thisa is yet another monument raised by Ramses II to himself. The massive temple was intended to impress. Destroyed in an earthquake, the remains still overwhelm the visitor with the statues of colossal size. The pylons measure 60m across. By the western stairs lies the statue, which had stood 17.5m tall, and was one of a pair. The head of the companion can be seen in the second court.
