Karnak Temple, Luxor: 180 reviews and 338 photos

by sachara

Karnak, called ''the most perfect of places'' (Ipet-Isut), was the most important place of worship during the Theban period.
From the 11th dynasty the Theban rulers have built, changed, enlarged, restored, dismantled the place without a logical planning into a city of temples. The complex measures 1,5 KM by nearly 1KM. There are many temples, obelisks, sacntuaries. We visited Karnak three times and discovered every time something else.

Directions: Luxor, eastbank Nile, three KM north of the Luxormuseum. Nice to go by bike.
