The beautifully decorated pillars of Medinet Habu still gleam brilliantly with colourful paint from thousands of years ago. A true work of art.
Here we can see figures, cartouches, hieroglyphs and inscriptions that were carved by the most trusted and skilled hands that ancient Egypt had to offer.
The mortuary temple of Ramesses III is easily one of the most important structures from the New Kingdom (1550- 1069 BC). Egypt’s artisans elevated themselves as the absolute master builders and technicians of the world during this period.
Ramesses III is one of the most interesting of the Ramesses family. He was murdered in an assassination plot that was planned by his wife.
History can be brutal.
