Excursions in Luxor East – The Temple of Karnak

Karnak Bild 1The temple complex in Karnak is the largest in Egypt and is located about 2 km north of the city center on the Nile. The oldest buildings of the complex date back more than 4,000 years. During the Roman era, the temples were constantly expanded and rebuilt. The total size of the complex is spread over 30 hectares, with a myriad of sacred places waiting for visitors. Partly small and covert, partly really impressive, such as the large colonnade, in which 134 columns were distributed over an area of 103 × 53 meters, which are more than 22 meters high. Many parts of this temple complex are still very well preserved today.
