The size of these statues have to be seen to be appreciated, they are enormous, even more amazing when you consider that they were carved from single blocks of stone.

There is not to much to say about this Memnon. There are the rest of a big temple. We visited this two guys at the end of our day trip. You only could imagine how big the temple once was.

To think that these colossal statues were buried under a giant mound of mud for donkeys years beggars belief. They are huge and well worth having a look at if you’re on your way to Luxor.
