Karnak is the second most visited tourist site in Egypt after the pyramids of Giza.
This desolate view of the remnants of the monumental gateway flanked by figures of the god Horus, usually depicted as a falcon-headed man, emphasizes the sense of discovery that must have been felt by tourists visiting Egypt in the 1860s. A tiny figure at the lower right testifies to the monumental scale of the ruins.
