A Temple for A Temple

We went to the Metropolitan Museum today. We sniffed around the Egyptian wing for a bit, checking out amazingly detailed and cryptic hieroglyphics carved with mind boggling precision in an emaculate piece of black stone.

Then we noticed light streaming from around a corner onto the sectioned marble floor. As we walked hand in hand around the bend we faced the breathtaking diagonal wall of windows in the room that houses the Temple of Dendur. Wouldnt it be nice to have our wedding there we mused, but mainly we just sat on the flat and low stone and soaked in the light and the massive space.

What an amazing room they have built to honor the temple, certainly echoes the grandure of the temple itself. A job well done for modern man.
