Real Ghost Stories

The Guardian Of The Ramesseum

 

In September last year (2010), I travelled to Egypt on a school trip. There was about 40 students' altogether, 5 teachers and 5 parents. We visited many places such as the Pyramids and Sphinx, the Temple of Philae, The Colossi of Memnon, the Cairo Museum, Aswan High Dam, Al Azar Mosque (Cairo), Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, the Step Pyramid and much more. We also spent two nights sailing the Nile River on some feluccas.

On one of the hottest days during our time over there, we spent a whole day visiting Queen Hatshepsut's Mortuary Temple and also the Valley of the Kings.

The Guardian Of The Ramesseum

The morning of this day, we left the Sonesta St George Hotel in Luxor where we were staying and took two motor boats across the Nile to the West bank. There, we rode some donkeys down the main street until we reached the Colossi of Memnon. We then took a bus to Hatshepsut's Temple. While driving we went passed the Ramesseum and being a major fan of Pharaoh Ramses II (the one who commissioned the Ramesseum's construction during his reign in the 19th Dynasty) I quickly snapped some pictures through the bus window.

It wasn't until I was back home in Australia roughly a week later and sorting through and naming my pictures that I realized there was a lone, black figure in the centre of one of the Ramesseum pictures I had taken. I am fairly positive that the figure is not a statue as many of the statues at the Ramesseum had fallen and crumbled many years ago and they are all a sandy colour, not black. The figure does resemble a lady in a full burka, however, there was no-one in or around the Ramesseum as it was completely closed at the time.

This was a trip of a lifetime, we could not have done if not for the generous help of the locals and I wish all the best to the people of Egypt during this difficult time.

Haha yes we were very lucky to have been able to go. It was the first trip to Egypt the school had organised and it was a great success thanks to all the hard work that staff and parents put in to make it happen. I feel so blessed to have been able to go. I live in a coastal town in South East Queensland.

I was so bummed not to have been able to visit the Ramesseum but it was closed for restoration which was scheduled to start a few weeks after we had left.

WOW you got to go to Egypt on a school trip?!?!?
You're so lucky!

I too live in Australia (WA), which state was this school in? - just so if I ever have kids they can go on the trip and I can tag along too haha

I can absolutely see someone there and if not for you saying no one is allowed there then I probably would have assumed it was a real live person... Creepy!

Javelina:
I thought she had a head scarf on too when I first saw but after zooming in on it time after time I realised it was actually just the edge of the half-wall behind her covered in a shadow

Cosmogal926:
I must admit the head is a little disproportionate to the rest of the body but maybe that's just because it's a fair distance away?

RachelChum,
Yes! I finally got to see the photo. I also magnified it, and yes, you did not disappoint. I do see what looks like a woman in a Burka, with the wind blowing the end of her head scarf behind her. She absolutely looks real in her posture and the way it seems as though she's facing away from your direction. Wow, that is pretty neat.
Thanks again for sharing.
😊

Holy Shnikies, I just magnified your photo and it really does look like someone is standing there. 😲 You are right it does look like a woman in full burka, but I don't see any feet or hands. Can't make out any facial features either. I don't think it's a staute because it just seems like a weird place to put one right? Great picture! Honestly one of the best I have seen in a long time. 😊

I have always wanted to go to Egypt and see the pyramids. My sister-in-law went not too long ago and said it was amazing. I must have looked at her pictures 100x's over. Can't wait for your photo to be uploaded. I'm so excited to see it. Thanks for sharing your story. 😊

This is a very interesting account... Thank you for posting!

RachelChum,
Thanks for bringing us your account of the trip. I love any stories about Egypt. To me it's one of the most fascinating places on earth, the history is so rich and full of mystery and intrigue. I absolutely love it.
Hopefully your photo will be posted soon and we'll all see what you saw when you first looked at them.
Thanks again.

Egypt is such an amazing country... So rich with culture and history... I am actually planning on taking my dad there one day since he's a lot like me and has always dreamt of visiting Egypt

Does anyone know why they mightn't have posted it?
