Karnak Temple, Luxor: 180 reviews and 338 photos
This sacred area, about 750 km south of Cairo on the east side of the Nile, had a small shrine to local deity during the 12th Dynasty. However, it developed over a period of about 2000 years into an enormous complex dedicated to the king of the Egyptian gods: Amon-Ra. It was trashed twice-by Akhenaten and by the early Christians-and is still being excavated with parts of earlier buildings found as building rubble in later additions.
