What people are saying:

The Colossus of Memnon is located between the west bank of the Nile River in Thebes and the Valley of the Kings. It was built during the reign of Amenhotep III of the 18th Dynasty of Egypt in the 15th century BC. The statue is a seated statue of himself, built in front of his temple, the temple After being demolished by the pharaohs, only two giant elephants with a height of 21 meters stood alone in the wilderness. The statues were severely weathered and the facial damage was beyond recognition. The earthquake in 27 BC caused a crack in a seated statue. When the sun rose in the morning, it made a sound, which was caused by the pores caused by the temperature difference. In 170 AD, the Roman emperor repaired the seated statue. Since then, it no longer sounds.
