A work in progress, but when they complete the project, it will definitely be a wow! Our guide told us, it will eventually be connected between the two sites as an open museum.

quite a sight to see so many sphinxes in one place and its just an avenue to lead from one temple to the other . As you drive around Luxor you catch little glimpses of them. Missing a trick not to light them at night...More
