It is the biggest temple complex in the world . It covers area of 100 hectares . The Temple is dedicated to god Amon Ra so it was a place of worship and spiritual center of the Ancient Egyptians. It was obligatory that every pharaoh add or repair something on it. The construction work began in 16c.BC. In next 2000 years about 30 pharaohs are "responsible" for its massive size. The Temple consists of 4 big parts but only one is open for the public.
