This statue was amazing. It is huge and the detail was incredible. So huge, you can hardly fit it all in a picture. would recommend seeing this.

The statue was in a building on the grounds of the ancient capital Memphis. It was very impressive as was the sphinx with the face of Hatshepsut. Of course Ramesses II dominated the site as he did many others.

It's not far from Cairo. The statue is huge and had astonishing detail. and is included in our Memphis tour. It's a nice little open air museum with a lovely alabaster sphinx as well

This Statue is so full of details and quite extraordinary. It's very near Cairo centre and very interesting in its history. Well worth the visit.
