Here, in two or three days, one may study the ruins of Luxor, Karnak and Thebes—names that the historian still conjures with.
Fig. 16 is a plan of the temple of Karnak, which was about 1200 feet long and 348 feet wide.
I well remember the morning when I stood before the propylon, or chief entrance of Karnak.
From the pylon a superb view may be gained of the ruins of Karnak.
The names of the captured cities of Palestine are still to be read on the walls of the temple of Karnak.
The temple of Karnak belongs to both the Eighteenth and Nineteenth dynasties.
Another time they sat by night in ruined Karnak, watching the silver moonlight bring out another world among the mighty pylons.
On this side also, in the district of Karnak, was the great temple of Amon.
It looked towards the east, facing the magnificent temple at Karnak.
At Karnak alone the sites of some ten or twelve have been found.
