inside the temple of Amun and Mut
This sanctuary cut into the mountain itself has two chambers. It is small and dark, with only the guide's torch to point out the decorated walls. The outer chamber has pillars and all walls are carved with scenes. Unfortunately if there are a number of tourists the tomb becomes horribly crowded, and add to that the stench of bat droppings, it is not the most welcoming place to be.
Anyone suffering from asthma or breathing difficulties should be warned; as it is many people end up covering their noses.
When the crowd is reduced it is possible to take pictures of the outer chamber.

care with the monuments
I'm sure no VT-er would deliberately want to damage an ancient monument. However, I must say I was horrified when I saw some of the locals trying to climb on the pyramids. Since so many are already in a fragile condition, it seems so inconsiderate to take the risk of causing damage. There were no security guards around either when we first arrived, but when other cars turned up, one came and asked my husband to sign the visitors' book..
