A visit to the Temple of Karnak will amaze you; you quickly discover the sheer size of the original temple must have been massive! The temple complex covered 200 acres and was considered Egypt’s most sacred site for almost 2000 years. As kings sought to ensure their temple was grander than their predecessor, the complex became an ever growing, living history book. The ruins of this complex of temples, chapels and service buildings are fascinating, and if you visit in the evening, don’t miss the Sound and Light Show telling the story of the history as you explore.
