Ramses II Tempel of Ptah

The Colossus of Ramses II is just that: colossal. Picture a statue ten meters (33ft.) long. It is a true testimony to the skill and workmanship of the ancients, and of course their patience. This great fallen statue was found by Giovanni Caviglia in 1820 near the south gate of the Temple of Ptah. The Tomb of Seti I, the father of Ramses II, is also renowned to be one of the most magnificent tombs within the Valley for the Kings. A fitting tomb for a great warrior pharaoh, it is among the longest tombs, and descends hundreds of feet down within the rock.
