Egyptian Inspirations in San Jose

A visit to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum & Planetarium with my mother last saturday left me completely inpired and in awe! Located in San Jose, California, the museum and landscape is "architecturally inspired by the Temple of Amon at Karnak, [and] houses the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in western North America," per their website.  I literally felt like I was transported to the ancient land for a couple hours, as I was surrounded by elegant columns, authentic mummies and egyptian artifacts, sphinxes, walls lined with hyroglyphics and majestic gardens.  The museum and planetarium was a total photography haven and I could barely contain myelf as I incessantly snapped pictures with my nikon and instagrammed away on my Iphone

Can't wait to go back someday!!!
