It's one of the biggest religious buildings in all over the world; it's consisting of three temples dedicated to the Triad of Thebes (an old name for Luxor). The main temple was built for the Master God of Egypt Amon-Ra and the others for his wife Goddess Mut and their son God Khonsou.

Karnak temple started as a little shrine for the local God Amon during the middle kingdom times when Luxor was just an ordinary city but when it was changed to be the capital of Egypt at the beginning of the New Kingdom; its local God Amon was upgraded to be the Master God of Egypt and thus his Karnak temple was expanded and enlarged over 1500 years to be the largest in Egypt.
