Looking closer at the temple it seems the elephants more closely resemble a "criosphinx" or ram-headed sphinx. They were mostly in the Thebes area, esp. Karnak. What does it mean? If it's a re-creation, it means...nothing  :-\. This place may turn into the Puesta del Sol for this season.  :knuckles:

Nope; it just looks too unweathered, even shiny, to match any shots I've seen of real temples. In the Sobek cap, you can even see what looks like the skeleton of an unfinished column. A movie set (maybe related to the chariot races)? An outdoor theme museum? I have no idea, it's a puzzle  ???. What makes it a little more difficult is that if it's not genuine, then it doesn't necessarily sit in Egypt.

 :lol: I hear you puddin.  Just like the (modern) Puesta Del Sol adobe, the Sobek thingie may not be authentic, so how do you look for a fake thing?   :groan:  Come to think of it, where on earth do you look for it.  Like slowhatch said, it could be anywhere...well, almost anywhere...well, anywhere with a lot of sand....  :lol3:   We just have to think like a crocodile god....so, if I were a crocodile god, where would I be hiding......hmmmm.....let me see......hmmmmmm.....  :angel:

Found this on a temple in Vietnam: "The temple, acknowledged by the state as an historic site, is a low building. On the tip of the roof are the traditional symbols found on Vietnamese religious structures: two dragons bowing to a flaming disk that represents the sun." The sun is pretty evident in the caps, so it's probably not China.

Spoilerers take note: Vietnam has a Forbidden City of it's own at Hue with dragons everywhere, it's one of the places where Flo broke down in TAR3.

I think the tank is the T-72 too.  And those are pine trees.  No luck with the insignia.

Don't remember Viet Cong nor North Viets having T-72 main battle tanks.  That leaves perhaps Mongolia or China.

The T-72 was the most common tank used by the Red Army from the 1970s to the collapse of the Soviet Union. It was also exported to other Warsaw Pact countries and Finland, India, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Yugoslavia, as well as being copied elsewhere, both with and without licenses

I don't think they're North Vietnameses.
North Vietnamese skin tones are lighter. It's colder up North.

Their facial features look more like Thais, Cambodians or Laotians. Their skins are darker since they live near the equator.

 :'(  OK, I'm bored to tears looking for Sobek, so let's have some fun with the Vietnam vidcaps.

Detectives checklist:

Street Market scene, check!    Motorcycle, check!    White boxes in background, check!

Huh?...wha...wait a minute...you think??..possibly!!!.....maybe???    BWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!   Not a chance...could be any street market in Hanoi.    :snicker:   I feel better now.   ;)

The clock tower is part of the Seif Palace complex in Kuwait City.

Here it is in Google Earth.

Guess how you get up to the top of Tibidabo Hill?

Quote
Tibidabo is a hill overlooking Barcelona, Spain. There is an amusement park, a TV mast (Torre de Collserola), and a Catholic church at the top, which can be reached by a funicular railway, by bus, and by car.
