The temple at Edfu, Southern エジプト. This entrance wall is 79m wide and 36m high.
I took this photo while riding a camel through the サハラ砂漠, エジプト.
Fortunately I was at the front of the pack,
since camels break wind almost continuously!

The Great Temple (the funerary complex of Ramses/Rameses/Ramesses II), アブ・シンベル神殿, Nubian desert, Southern エジプト, 1250’s B.C.
Twice a year, in late March and September (the vernal and autumnal equinoxes resp.), a ray of sunlight penetrates the
65 metres between the entrance and the shrines and bathes Amon-Ra and Ramses/Rameses/Ramesses II in light.
