Photo of construction work at the Avenue of Sphinxes

Flickr (Sphingenallee)

A somewhat staggering photograph of the construction work being carried out at the Avenue of Sphinxes in front of the Temple of Luxor (also shown in the photo).

The other photos in the set also show the work being carried out and forms a photo story in its own right.

Hi Andie

Great set of photos though the condition of the sphinx's and the avenue is pathetic, it will take a whole lot of "restoration", recreation of statues to make it appear to be more than a waste land. Perhaps if they want whats best when they are done they can bury it again and plant a pretty garden.

Will this avenue be Egypt's biggest fake attraction?
