Similar to the avenue of the sphinxes in the temple of Luxor, the Karnak Temple has it's own line of sphinxes, the difference is in Karnak - it's a ram-headed sphinxes (in Luxor it's Necatanebo's head). The main gate of Karnak has on both sides have several ram-headed sphinxes and it used to be linked up all the way to Luxor Temple -- for the procession.
