Grand Entrance to the Temple at Luxor

A camel caravan rests in the shadow of an ancient Egyptian cult temple ruins – colonnades can be seen between the two main pylons – Obelisk standing before the old temple entrance – a complex of sun-baked mud dovecotes has been placed over and especially around the original sacred precinct – a slice of water near the horizon.
