Virtual Temples...
« on: January 23, 2011, 03:16:44 am »

Okay, this is not exactly what the Title of the Thread specifies, though it is close. I have been using Google-Earth for many years now; I absolutely love the technology around it. There is this feature in Google-Earth that allows you to see a location in 360... though I have only ever seen this in a big city like New York or Rome.

Though, just today I 'flew' over to Karnak just to have a stroll around the temples I am obsessed with once more and guess what? There are numerous 360 of the Temples of Amun-Ra and Ipet-Resut in Luxor! It was absolutely astonishing! All in all, I have seen dozens upon dozens of beautiful images of the Temples of Karnak and the rest of Kemet; but theses 360 tours of the temples were breathtaking... it really did feel like I was walking threw the temples!  

Okay, I know I am getting a little over reactive on this, but I just thought this was so interesting... I am dreaming to get to Egypt very soon, and being able to 'walk' through these temple in Google-Earth was just :) :) :)

I defiantly recommend looking through the 360 tours if you have Google-Earth... it is such an amazing tool.
