In this first picture you can see the starkness of the desert terrain.
Hordes of tourists descend on this place every day.
Here is a close-up of the temple structure.
The columns of the temple in the picture below are huge.
The next image is of the queen's statue. May seem like a man's portrait at first glance, but the beard is a false beard. This was a common symbol of pharaonic power depicted in the statues of all pharoahs, male or female. Women rulers were not common. You might notice that her figure is not visible clearly. Most women were depicted this way in the art of the time, probably to downplay their femininity.
