Karnak Temple

 

Karnak Temple

Karnak Temple, The Karnak Temple Complex is home to three main temples, several smaller enclosed temples, and a number of outer temples – combining the achievements of many generations of ancient builders over a period of 1500 years. Around thirty different pharaohs contributed to the building process of this site, enabling it to reach a size, complexity and diversity not seen elsewhere. It was after all the New Kingdom’s most sacred site.
The Ancient complex covers a total area of 2 sq. km, and its name “Karnak” means, “Fortified Settlement” in Arabic.
