Floor tiles of Karnak Temple are not ‘ancient’ as rumored: official

There was a bit of reaction to the picture posted last week of the disabled access but those that were worried will be relieved to read this

In response to photos circulating on Egypt’s social media outlets that have alleged the removal of the archeological tiles of Karnak Temple located inside Luxor, head of Karnak Temple’s remnants Mostafa El Seghair denied the claims.
He said in media statements that new modifications were added to the tiles of the temple to put a path for handicapped people to facilitate their access inside the temple.
He further explained that the tiles located inside the temple are not the archeological ones as rumored, noting that new tiles were put in 2008.
