Situated along the banks of the Nile River, the Karnak Temple is everything you can imagine. Dedicated to the Egyptian Gods Amun, Mut and Khonsu, the Temple is spread over some 200 acres and has designated sacred areas for each of the three Gods. The huge premises actually plays host to a large collection of small temples and statues rife with symbolism and illusions-legend has it that every ruler of Egypt contributed to the Temple we know it today by building a temple, statue, etc. Right from the statues that greet you at the entrance to the grand 134 columns hypostyle hall, the Karnak Temple will one of the many jaw dropping things you’ll see in Egypt.

i don't know any words would describe the place, more than 6000 years monuments everywhere, and the sound and light show at night is perfect
very cozy please has wonderful staff are eager to help you at any time, the rooms are clean and tidy but the internet connection was very bad
One of the top sites to visit. Karnak Temple was probably the most impressive temple out of all that I'd seen, in terms of its size and the majesty of the structures, but there are other temples far well-preserved in the smaller details such the retention of the colours and more intricate carvings.
Amazing historical place.
