"Feel the atmosphere of the Great Hypostyle Hall" Egypt Things to Do Tip by Muya

Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos

  Sitting on a huge column
by Muya

Here I am, sitting at the feet of a column... and feeling as small as can be ! The splendor of the hypostyle room, where only priests and some cleansed faithful were allowed to penetrate, leaves me without voice. The magical atmosphere that is still perceptible today, plays with my imagination... Lost in my thoughts, I can see meditative priests passing by in their linen dress, ready to celebrate the cult of God Amun...
Very productive imagination indeed :-)

Address: Temple of Karnak
