Unfortunately, virtually nothing remains of this once great edifice beyond the two immense 'Colossi of Memnon' which stood before its entrance. These great sandstone statues of Amenophis III flanked by small figures of his mother and his wife Tiye (Tiyi) are nearly 59ft high ...

"After the death of Thutmose II, Hatshepsut herself assumed pharaonic power and privilege, and for the construction of a temple for her cultus she selected a majestic half-circle of cliffs bounding the western end of the desert plain of Asasif.

"The causeway of the pyramid of Unas must have been one of the most impressive of any pyramid. In the roof a slit was left open, allowing a shaft of light to illuminate a gallery of brightly painted reliefs. Only fragments were found, but these hint at the astonishing array of scenes that once covered the walls: craftsmen working gold and copper; e...
