Owner description: The karnak temple is one the distinguished identifying marks of Luxor in Egypt, where each of consecutive kings tried to make his temple most magnificent so as to be so distinguished than his predecessor, so the Karnak temples changed to a complete guide and collection showing the development stages of ancient Egyptian art and distinguished pharaonic architecture.

Temple of Karnak has a massive footprint and something behold. Numerous columns reaching high into the sky. The area is well maintained and traces of colour can still be found on some of the hyrogliphixs. Definitely worth spending some time there.

Karnak temple complex dedicated to Amun Ra, is perhaps one of the largest temple complex in the world.
Built during 2055 BC by the ancient Egyptians , this complex consists of huge pylons, columns and huge statues.
There is a 97 feet obelisk that stands in the centre of the temple. The huge statues of Ramses towers over the complex.
There is a huge sacred water tank in the complex also.
The most impressive is the avenue of Sphinxes leading to the Luxor temple.
No visit to Luxor can be complete without a visit to this great temple.

We visited Karnak at night for the Light and Sound experience and what an experience it is, it takes you back in time thousands of years, you feel apart of the History. It truly takes your breath away.

This place is very attractive as a religious complex that shows antique periode technology and people are more educated ,planned and powerful as we thought and guessed. In Quran as we learned as a muslim ; God says us ‘’ we created more intelligent educated tribes (people)with Enourmous technology than before you ‘’ This Temple proves Quran ‘sentence. I am effected very much everyone must see and experience this atmosphere

Karnak is truly amazing. It is temples within temples, with monumental obelisks, columns, statues, carvings of multiple Pharaohs.
