A massive complex and temple, amazing structure, it was sad to see some things vandalised or covered up with plaster on the columns for example. We had a guide explain lots of fascinating things half of which I have already forgotten by now.

Amazing history here and so incredible to walk around all of the 134 columns as well as all of the other statues. Truly is breathtaking to take it all in. I couldn't stop staring at everything!

Although Karnak Temple was destroyed multiple times (during the Persian invasion and the Assyrian invasion), the extensive excavations and just the pure grandness and grandiose of this temple built by the ancient Egyptians still comes boldly through. It is arguably the largest religious building in...More

This temple is very interesting. It is much bigger than Luxor temple, having several small temples inside. The ancient writings are everywhere. The columns are towering and massive. I visited early in the morning at 7am and it was really nice without other tourists.
