  Edfu - palm tree columns
by suku93

Karnak temple in Luxor has 134 columns all shaped like a Papyrus flower. By the way, I was told one of the reasons why papyrus flower was considered so important is the pyramid-shaped structure of its stem!

However in Edfu temple, you will start observing the emergence of palm tree shaped columns as well.

Notice in this picture how the palm tree column is in between two papyrus columns on both sides
