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.
