The Temple of Karnak

Tu pride flash

The Temple of Karnak is a spectacular complex of sanctuaries, kiosks, pylons and obelisks dedicated to Theban gods and the greater glory of the pharaohs. Everything is on a gigantic scale. The Amun Temple enclosure alone measures some 260,000sq metres. Built, added to, dismantled, restored, enlarged and decorated over 1500 years, Karnak was the important place of worship in Egypt during the height of Theban power.
