Daily Photo: Luxor, Avenue of the Sphinxes

The Avenue of Sphinxes at the Temple of Luxor is a processional path that once extended all the way to Karnak Temple,, roughly parallel to the Nile, and there are moves today to reinstate it along its entire original path. The Avenue existed during the reign of Hatshepsut, and was used during the Opet Festival.
