 Medinet Habu, in Southern (Upper) Egypt is the most magnificent mortuary Temple of the richest of all the Egyptian Pharaohs, Ramesses III.

Behind (on the north side) of each of 8 pillars in the vestibule colonnade north of the 2nd Court, there are depicted a pair of winged gods in exactly the way they are depicted on the Ark of the Covenant. Arks are depicted elsewhere on the walls. 


Medinet Habu has many features copied from the Temple of Solomon including the Migdol Gateway (an exact copy of the Temple in Jerusalem) and a Holy of Holies as well as a treasury. Both Channel 4 and NBC refused to include any of these scenes in the documentary/special.

 There are lots of sunsets however :-)
