May Ramases, the King of Upper & Lower Egypt, live forever


In 1991 I set myself the goal of visiting the Temple of Ramases II.

The offering scenes were stunning and well worth the journey. I became friends with Shawfik, the tomb guardian. He informed me that he was the only Coptic tomb guardian in Upper Egypt. A very proud individual, who sported a Coptic cross upon his wrist. He was such a unique character that I felt loathe to leave the site.

I took over one hundred slides at the Temple, six of which are shown here.
