  The Memnon Colossi

These two enormous statues is all what remains of what once was the funerary temple of Amenhotep III. Originally they stood at the entrance of the temple and were 21 m tall but their crowns have been stolen. Now they measure still 16 m and stand between the Nile and the necropolis high up in the mountains behind the statues.

Directions: West bank of the river Nile - Luxor
