Luxor, Karnak Temple: Beautiful hieroglyphics adorned the walls and were remarkably well preserved at some spots inside the temple. Here, some of the preservation was intentionally poorer. The name and image of Queen Hatshepsut (pharoah of the New Kingdom) are stricked from the story. Her stepson was bitter that she took the throne from him when he was young and tried to erase her legacy.
