Karnak-Temple - colossal statue of King Ramses II
Luxor & Karnak

We are here in the First Great Court of the Temple.

Right in front of us stands a colossal statue of King Ramses II made of reddish granite. In front of him, a little bit smaller, his daughter Intanat. The king, as a mediator of man and God, presents himself in superhuman grandeur in front of the temple entrance.

We also see a large column of calcite alabaster in the middle of the courtyard.  It is the centre of a colonnade - a colonnade - erected in the 25th dynasty around 750 BC in front of the second pylon at the entrance gate of the temple. The First Pylon did not exist at that time. A single column of this colonnade has been standing upright since ancient times. Today it is called the "Taharka Column" after its builder.
