Egypt: Along the Nile

Temple of Hathor, Dendara
My favorite Egyptian temple

Pharaoh's gaily life with deities
Or rather, "gaily afterlife"

Grafitti dated back to 1872
It even has special effect:-)

Temple of Horus, Edfu

As most monarch does,
Pharaohs love to concoct how deities grant him the power
to exploit, abuse and torture people
Temple of Sobek & Haroeris, Kom Ombo

Stone carving, Karnak, Luxor
Note her complicated braid

Pharaohs, Karnak, Luxor

A cross at Karnak
Must have been made by early Coptic Christians
