Twilight Zone in The Temple of Dendur

When I want to escape the loud, dirty streets of NYC I head to the Met and visit the Temple of Dendur.   It is one of my favorite places in the MET.   I have been coming to this gallery for 20 years and I always feel peacefully transported to another era.   Dated back to the reign of Augustus Caesar it is a gift from Egypt (1965) and dates back to around 15 B.C.    Hard to believe these Aeolian Sandstone temples are sitting on 83rd street in NYC.

Roof with a view

MET sculpture garden on a sunny day.     So peaceful and beautiful.    Great place to have a drink and people watch people enjoying art.
