POTD: Great Hypostyle Hall

From 2019 11 23 Luxor

Today's photo-of-the-day is the Hypostyle Hall of Karnak Temple in Luxor, Egypt. It dates to c. 1290-1224 BCE. It covers an area of 54,000 sq ft. The roof, now fallen, was supported by 134 columns, the tallest being 79 ft. high. Despite the size, with all those columns, it felt like it would have been crowded inside.
