Karnak Temple

Over a 130 columns fill the hypostyle hall to bursting in this fascinating Luxor landmark.

Built by over 30 different Pharaohs during their reigns, Karnak Temple has stood the test of time.

Having been pulled down and added to over thousands of years it surprisingly still shows deeply carved hieroglyphics and signs of the original paint.

One of the largest temples in Egypt, Karnak Temple rests on the banks of the Nile in the middle of bustling Luxor and was once connected to Luxor Temple by a 1.2km double row of Sphinx - some of which remain.

Why do the Karnak Temple?

Hypostyle hall of 134 columns
2nd biggest monument in Egypt
Honors numerous different ancient gods
Must-see part of Egypt
