The Ramesseum is the memorial temple of Pharaoh Ramesses II. It is located in the Theban necropolis in Upper Egypt, across the River Nile from the modern city of Luxor. The walls of the Ramesseum, which is only about half preserved, are decorated with reliefs, including scenes depicting the Battle of Kadesh, the Syrian wars, and the Festival of Min. This temple is identified with the “Tomb of Ozymandias” (a corruption of Ramses II’s prenomen) described by the Greek historian Diodorus Siculus in the 1st-century bc, and the shattered colossus of Ramses was the subject of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem “Ozymandias.”
